briefly, here is a curiosity-- for years, actually, experience a burning sensation, ONLY when I eat certain foods, and seems mostly, seafood. Now, usually there is seasoning (a minor amt) on seafood, but usually get the same feeling when it's on seafood. I eat seasoning on other foods, and nothing. Is there something only in that type of food that can cause this reaction? Otherwise, I wouldn't even know about that "feeling". As soon as I'm done swallowing the piece of food that aggravates whatever, it's gone!!? Any ideas? Is that true heartburn or just a specifc irritant, sensitivity to a particular food type? It dissipates as quickly as it comes on. Also, I can feel the same thing when eating very fibrous foods, like pears, it seems.
