I am a 74 year old male.  For the past 8 months I have periodically experienced a food blockage problem that is only relieved by reguritating.  This occurs after taking a first bite of food, usually a meat of some kind, and it seems to be caught at the stomach entrance.   I hiccup, belch and then regurgitate, sometimes severely, to rid myself of the blockage.   Following this episode I can usually eat as if there was not a problem.   My throat is getting sore from this routine.   My PCP told me it was due to age but I am ready to request an endoscopy to see what the problem really is.   Do you have any suggestions??
