Was just told I have narrowing of my esophagus. Anyone else told this ?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the GERD group.

Yes; did your doctor explain why? Was it stricture? Was an endoscopy performed to visulalize your esophagus?

Hi @arkigal, were you able to get futher explanation of the narrowing of your esophagus from your doctor?

Hi @arkigal, How do you know; did you have an endoscopy or do you just have symptoms?

I just had the my lower esophoagal stricture dilated and it is quite a difference. Really able to swallow food better

I had this terrible problem with food clogging my esophagus and was dilated during an endoscopy. It worked beautifully for for about a year and after that period of time was needed again

Sounds similar; do you have a “stricture”? Have the doctors offered any other solutions?

It has a good medicine; has it not helped? I found that making some changes to my diet snd omeprazole worked for me.
