Please describe your experience of food being stuck
After stressing about the fact that i feel food going down my throat for about a year, and doing control bites of bread or solid foods to see what I feel when I swallow, I searched online that people feel food stuck in throat and I wonder if I feel the same thing.
When I swallow my control bites but not only with bread or solid food i sometimes feel like food gets stuck, the sensation passes if I don't think about it, or it goes down really quickly if I drink, or I feel relief if I burp several times. I usually burp during my meal and after.But even if i have that feeling I can it and drink as much as I want so I guess the food does go down.
Please advise me if it's in my head or not, it drives me crazy!!!
Here is my full story if you have time to listen:
"I've freaking out about this for about a year:
1. My panic started when I thought I felt my food going down my esophagus, I looked it online and I freaked out, making me analyze my every swallow.
2.went to the doctor gave my some antiacid, don't know if it helped because i kept concentrating on what I feel when i swallow so much that I could actually feel my heartbeats.
3.For this past year I kept on searching online, went to 2 doctors one told my it's not urgent but I should do an endoscopy, which I didn't and one told me I swallow too much.
4.The searching online really scared me because I found about some dreadful disease and after I read something I find out that i might feel it too but I'm not sure.
My symptoms are:
-sometimes i feel food going down my throat, esophagus or whatever, and I do think about it every bite I take,I even take control bites of bread and other stuff and swallow larger bites to analyze what I feel.
-sometimes after i eat i feel something stuck in my chest, but i'm not sure, maybe it's a bit of pressure, and i feel to burp, and after i burp for a few seconds i feel revealed, I didn't realize I have this feeling until after I read online about food being stuck in throat, maybe i had it and did not pay attention.
- i burp a lot, during my meals and after, even if i drink water i burp
The thing is I'm not sure of anything but I'm really scared to death, I think I have no pain, i can drink and eat as much as i want so i guess nothing gets stuck literally, I'm 25, didn't loose weight, still feel hunger.
Did you had similar problems or what do you think this could be?
