Esophagus pain when I swallow HELP!!
Im really scared, the past 14 days I have been battling a nasty cold
Symptoms of the cold, Sore throat, Post nasal drip, runny nose. (Not anymore though, just post nasal drip and occasionally stuffy nose)
This morning I woke up coughed like hell got the mucus out of the back of my throat. Took my medication and off to work I go. At work I realized it was painful to swallow almost felt like I had a ball of food/phlegm blocking my Esophagus. I was very scared.
I came home and was coughing and threw up, a lot of phlegm came up. I then forced my self to puke I didnt see any phlegm but I did feel a lot of relief. Right now its definitely not as bad as it was earlier but still some slight pain/irritation.
What could this be? The night before I had terrible heart burn from 2 slices of pizza... Could post nasal drip go down into the Esophagus?
