So I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but I have had some issues with food getting stuck in my throat. I'll be eating and when I swallow it feels as though the food is in my throat right above my sternal notch. I can breath but I experience a very uncomfortable pressure while it's stuck. I've tried drinking water but "wash it down", but most times I get no relief. Usually I hold my breath or extend my neck and it will pass eventually, but in certain situations I need regurgitate the food. There are circumstances where I do this after I drink my water will still be cold which leads me to believe it is also getting stuck. I'm not sure if this is more of a reflex issue or not. I don't know if someone can help me figure out exactly what I'm dealing with but if you can try I'd appreciate it.
sounds like gerd acid reflux - i have that - they go in and stretch it a little a balloon and then i can eat food again ok - i go like every year to do it - no big deal - they knock u out and then u wake up and your all done - they will make u take acid pills b4 u go to sleep. like pepcid etc. thats what i take. some ppl take prevacid, prilosec etc, before bed.
