    Difficulty Swallowing
    An_243971 posted:
    Hello, for about three years now I have an extremely diffucult time swallowing food. (I mean just about anything) I have had food stuck to wear I almost choked to near death THREE times now!

    I was advised that it may be "Esophagial" I hope I spelled that correct (lol)

    I must chew very slowy and always drink water after every bite of food I eat.

    I panic and get anxiety if I feel like my food will not pass.

    Help Please!

    Thanks VK

    My husband has had the exact same problem also a few years now and he freaks out everytime it happens. Usually at dinner time after working out at the gym. I'm now ready to see a throat specialist to find out what the problem is. I hope we find resolution to this problem and good luck to you as well.
