I have issues with swallowing and often get food wedged in my throat that makes me sick. It's sore when I swallow too.

Hi

I do get a lot of sore throats & often feel like my throat is swollen.

Have you had your thyroids checked? If it keeps up go back to see your Gp again and ask them to do some blood tests, its worth keeping an eye on if the symptoms continue as lots of fibro sufferers also have thyroid problems.

This was one of my first symptoms I also suffer with reflux, even when not burning the liquid leaves me with a sore throat and it feels like I can't swallow properly and food gets stuck in your throat :( I'm taking lanzoprazol for this now which has eased it so I would see your gp to get something to take :)

I had this when I used to watch my son play football or rugby be on the side lines and get over excited try to swallow and for a couple of seconds you couldn't , at times it was quite scary , felt like your throat had closed up , don't have it as much now.

I have problems swollowing.

Not sure if its the fibro were my neck/throat are so tense or whether its the ulcer/reflux problems.

I get the hiccups each time i eat and need to drink water with each meal so it goes down.

I am due a camera down my throat which could see what it is but not sure i am ready for that proceedure just yet!
