    blockage in throat?

    I have had this problem at least 10 years and its more of a problem now at age 71. When i eat, especially meat, the first couple bites, even if i chew it well, it gets stuck somewhere in my throat or just below. I cannot get it clear unless i drink, cold water. Nothing else will clear it. Even then i have to kneel by the toilet and try to peuk it out. Little chunks of it will come out until it finally clears. I can breath when this happens but i can't swallow it completely so i cant take another bite till i clear it. Please advise me on what you think this is. It gets kind of panicky sometimes like maybe i wont be able to clear it. Like it said , its been going on a long time and it happens not every time, maybe 3 or 4 times a month but i just hope its not a slow growing cancer or some major health problem.

    Have you seen a specialist? It could be that you have a stricture in your esophagus and or, most probably, reflux.

    Are you on any reflux meds?

    No, i haven't been to a specialist yet. I am probably going to go to my veterans hospital/doctor to see if they know how to find out whats wrong. I believe it is slowly getting a little worse. I will look up reflex symptoms next. Thanks for your reply.
