occasionally i'd have pain when i swallowed something not chewed properly, as though whatever it was was scraping my esophagus down near my stomach. then a piece of pear actually got stuck and caused a lot of pain till i made myself throw up to get rid of it. now, the last 3 weeks i've developed constant bloating, to the point where i can't eat much or take a deep breath, day and night. at first, it hurt to lie on my left side early in the night. and at the same time, i got a very itchy rash all over my abdomen, back of my neck, and head. i've been to see 3 doctors, who haven't been able to tell me anything, except that it might be an allergy. i'm going nuts.
