    I have the sensation of food getting stuck in my esophagus each time I eat. It seems like i swallow the food and then it gets stuck low down in my throat, right above my stomach ~ pills too.

    Anyone else have this?

    I do have an appointment for an endoscopy on Wednesday so we will see what happens then. I have some other autonomic nervous system problems and I am concerned that this esophageal problem is related. Let's hope not!

    very rare now but I did have a barium swallow which showed my esophagus was constricted then went for the camera down the throat (forgot the name of test) and showed no reason for it - the doc. did give me an esophogeal dilation while he was down there but it only helped for a week or so. Like I said its rare that I get it now but if it is really bad I take an ativan & it seems to relax my throat. Amy

    I experience this feel often, too. Sometimes, I blame it on trying to eat too fast, and sometimes I think it's because I'm overweight. Don't know what it's caused from, but I don't like it!!!!!!!!!!!!
