I've recently had a stretch because I had a sensation of tightening/closing/feeling of need to burp to release throat while eating . This happened when trying to eat evening meal .Rarely during day when to be frank I only graze .
Endoscopy found mild stricture but food in stomach so a pyloric stretch was carried out as well .
Why would the pyloric valve need stretching ? Is it more because of the vagus nerve function than the fact that it's actually become " tight" or constricted ? And wouldn't making it easier for the food to clear the stomach make dumping more likely ?
I found some slight improvement with the swallowing - if the food is building up in the stomach would it have such a rapid effect that after several mouthfuls while eating a meal my throat feels blocked ?
But I am having more dumping now and wondered if this could be connected .
What do people think ?
