Keep Getting Choked on Food
Help someone! I am getting choked on food when I eat constantly.
I am down to only eating soft, mushy foods like mashed potatoes and they ar getting stuck in my throat and it hurts really bad when I push it down with liquids.
Today I was eating mashed potatoes and it felt like the food was stuck in the back of my throat and the sides of my throat kind behind and farther down my throat from my tonsils.
I took a drink to get it to go down and it was very painful.
My stomach is always burning and raw feeling inside, especially around my belly button area.
Somtimes dairy products make it worse, the burning and I'll feel it way up in my throat.
I've been taking over the counter liquid Gaviscon for a few months and it seems to help a little.
I don't like getting choked, its very scary. I am scared to eat solid foods now, I can't eat solids without getting choked. I can't even eat mashed potatoes now without getting choked.
Someone please help, does anyone else feel this way too?
I don't have insurance so I can't see a doctor.
