Hard To Swallow

Posted , 3 users are following.

For the past week my throat has been dryish and it's hard to swallow. It feels like something is stuck in my throat or chest which makes eating a little difficult. I feel the need to constantly drink something. These symptoms go away for a little while but come back eventually. I don't know if this is related or not but I've been burping more than usual and sometimes when its hard to swallow I get dizzy. I don't know whether these symptoms are due to anxiety or something else. Anyone know what this could be?

    You will need to see a doctor, who will probably check to see whether your throat is sore or not.

    It might be reflux related, or something to do with your saliva. Try taking Gaviscon Advance for a while to see whether it helps.
