Bone spurs on C5/C6 impinging on esophagus
I've been treated for more than 15 years for GERD with no relief from large doses of Prilosec. I have almost constant pain in the area of the esophagus as well as gagging and coughing when I swallow. It also feels like small bits of food lodge in my esophagus for days at a time without my being able to cough them out.
Recent modified swallow shows bone spurs on cervical 5 and 6 impinging on esophagus but my dr said those wouldn't be causing my symptoms.
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms and found successful treatment.
