Hi guys, does anyone ever get random pains after swallowing? a few times over the last couple of months after i've swallowed some food, immediately  i get a sharp pain in the centre of my chest, almost coming from my windpipe, any ideas?

Yes. I attribute my pain to acid reflux or inflammation from past reflux. Remember that you can also have acid reflux without heartburn, it's called "silent reflux".

Sometimes this pain could also be due to spasms of your esophagus, thanks to stress and anxiety. I get that too. I wouldn't be too concerned, but you could always see an ENT or Gastro specialist if it bothers you.

I had that as a teen.   It was an esophageal spasm.  Nothing serious at all, it just went away by itself.
