Calling Gasrtonentologist Tomorrow/Cannot Deal With Swallowing Problem

I posted before about my swallowing problem. It has not gotten much better. The doctors suspected gerd, but they weren't sure. I had trouble with mashed potatoes and had trouble today..very weird...
I want a gastro scope done so they can see lower into my esophagus. Today it is a little sore on the right side..just to the right of my adams apple.
I have a bunch of stuff on my plate, i.e. gradschool. and this is holding me back from focusing on that I need answers..

Re: Calling Gasrtonentologist Tomorrow/Cannot Deal With Swallowing Problem

Trouble eating even mash potatoes, that sounds serious. Ya a gastroscope sounds like a good idea, see whats going on in there. My gastro doc suggested my esophagus be stretched if needed, I'm hesitant to do it. Its interfering with my breathing a little now so if it gets worse then I'll face the music.

I am not sure if i gets worse or what..I was ok with chicken salad sandwich which was honestly mostly mayonaise earlier, but the mashed potatoes were lumpy.It felt as if they were sticking. I can't believe this..i am only 28!
I may ask the ENT if they can do a barium swallow..
