Now, however, even though I'm taking Omeprazole, I am getting the stabbing pains in
the xiphoid area (right in
the middle, where the crease between chest and stomach is) and food very often hurts on its way down. Also, after say a pint of water, my throat feels very cold and when I burp, the water is coming back up into my mouth. A while after eating/drinking, I get a glugging type noise coming from my stomach/esophagus and up into my throat - it sounds like a tap dripping.
