the cold drinks or cold food most likely are irritating a raw area in your lower eosophagus or stomach
you should see a doctor about this.

or prescription carafate to help coat your stomach.
The pain comes almost immediately upon swallowing and only lasts briefly
that sounds like a raw area in your lower esophagus.
you could have a raw area from acid reflux coming up from your stomach
you need this area to heal from decreasing stomach acid
Should I try malox or mylanta or zantac before seeing a doctor?
yes, you can try these stomach acid blockers first.
and avoid super cold foods for now.
avoid tomato sauce and alcohol, sodas, spicy foods.
avoid black pepper.
until the area gets better.
Sodas do seem worse, hot drinks don't seem to affect it
so you have to avoid sodas.
Will fruit juice affect it if they are acidic?
acidic juices like orange juice or grapefruit juice can cause your stomach to produce more stomach acid.
