feeling of food stuck in throat...also heart fluttery feeling...yuck

Sometimes I have a feeling like food gets stuck in my throat right after I swallow it. I end up drinking lots of fluid to try and wash the feeling away and eventually it goes away. It's really silly because it will be something sometimes as simple as bread that feels like it gets stuck. Also here and there I have these feelings of a strange movement of sorts in my chest. It almost feels like something's in there tapping at my chest area, near the bottom of my neck or throat. It makes me want to cough or something to make the feeling go away. It happens so quickly I'm not sure if it's impeding my breathing or not but I DO know it scares the heck outta me. It happened last night and so I looked up some posts on here and I think it's something that's not going to kill me but lately when I have little unexplainable pains or aches it really freaks me out. Does anyone else have a fear of going to the doctor because you think they'll find everything under the sun wrong with you? I hate that because I think if they told me I was fine I'd feel much better.

Hi, I think it sounds like you might have acid reflex. I, too, feel like food get stuck in my throat - I think it is b/c I've been choking consistently, gasping for air at some points, so now it became somewhat of a phobia.

But I find that some fried foods and even rice leave a bitter taste in my throat causing me to think something's there. I'm just told to take smaller bits & drink water.
