Unhappy stuck food in throat

Sometimes I"ll take too big a bite of food or eat to fast,and it stops right in the middle of my throat.Then I have a lot of spit, but have to spit it out because it makes it hurt worse. Sometimes it goes down and I'm fine and other times I end up having to throw up to get it unstuck. Then finish eating. Any idea's? Thanks'

Re: stuck food in throat

That is, in medical terms, dysphagia or difficulty swallowing. There are a lot of things that can cause that. Being as it only happens sometimes, yours doesn't sound too immediately serious.

Make an appointment with your family doctor or a gastroenterologist if it seems to be a problem For now, just try to take smaller bites.
