i get it every so often, it feels like your throat is going to close, mine lasts for a few days at a time.

Yes I get this time sometime, it is very unpleasant and feels like solid food is sticking to my oesophagus and am swallowing a lump. GP said this was oesophagitis, likely to be induced by the pills am taking and to take gaviscon if it happens again :roll: .
I also get chest pain when this happens, feels like trapped air in the chest and is very painful.
I still get it when I attempt to swallow a chunk of something without chewing it to mush and OMG then it bl**dy hurts :needhug: Eventually it goes on its own SIGH.
Do you also get lot of wind (upper end) and indigestion?

I get this especially with food which is dry such as biscuits or toast. I have to make sure I have plenty to drink at hand if I have anything like that but even then I can't always eat it. I also have gastro oesophageal reflux for which I take Omeprazole.

Yes

I think the reason for me is that my mouth gets very dry with my medication so i chew gum or sook sweeties all the time.
Worst for me is having a drink during the night i choke etc.,
Think its a fibro thing - sorry

Had this a few times and thought it was just me.

The worst I had was when swallowing some food when it seemed to catch at the back of my throat going nowhere - I thought I was going to choke :shock: To this day I don't know how I managed to shift it but it was very scary at the time especially as I was on my own at the time.

I love this site. The more I read that other people suffer the things I do, then less weird I feel.
I have this too and I hate it. I keep forgetting to mention it to my new Doc :oops:
I get sick of my OH saying ''have you got a sore throat'' every time I eat, I've explained over and over to hi what happens :roll:

hi all
yes i get the swollowing thing too not allthe time mainly when eating toast. its like it gets stuck in the oesophegus and is like a big lump slowly going down to the stomach. not only do i get it with food it also happen with drinks too. its is quite painful when its going down the oesophegus(oh no not that word again i can't spell it) and yes it gives me wind in the chest area. I haven't mentioned to my gp as i don't want more tablets that will help with that i take too many now. :D
