    I know the feeling and I have had it for years. Food feels stuck, trouble swallowing and a feeling like there is a lump in my throat. I stay away from any type of rice because it gets stuck and I have to wait for it to go down. I find these feelings come and go but get stressed when they appear....thanks google! I have acid reflux too that seems to come and go.

    I came on these boards today because over the last two days, I have developed dry mouth and now it is difficult to swallow and my throat hurts. Feels like my throat is going to close in. I have little saliva. My eyes are dry too! This is along with constant ear pain. Was considering going over to my doctor's office this afternoon but feel like I am crazy. I was just there about ear pain, vertigo and post nasal drip.

    My symptoms never seem to end!
