Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE): Symptoms



The symptoms of EoE may include swallowing problems (dysphasia), vomiting, food getting stuck in the esophagus (food impaction), heartburn or chest pain, abdominal pain, coughing, or slow growth.

The typical EoE patient is a toddler who displays an immune or allergic response, is vomiting and has feeding problems. The toddler may respond to a simple diet that excludes certain types of foods. Other people may have food impaction and swallowing problems.

There are also people who may have atypical symptoms, are not having an immune or allergic response, do not respond to dietary exclusions, and may have isolated food impaction incidents. People with GERD may also have the same symptoms.
