Esophagus

I have been noticing difficulty in swallowing and a sort of lump in the throat feeling.Also a tight sensation in the chest.My throat also feels very dry.have had tests that have ruled out the heart.These symptoms have been going on for more than 6 months.due to see a gastro Doc next week.Do these symptoms sound like something serious.Any advice appreciated,
Dimi.

Symptoms that are similar to heart problems are also found in those with reflux problems. Until you see the doc, you may want to consider following a GERD diet it will give you a head start if the doc decides to try you on a course of medication for possible acid problems.
