Hi everyone so start I am 16 and I need answers like now. So I started with anxiety during November and sometimes I would get panic attacks while eating with family so I would be unable to eat and then since feburary of 2018 I started to to fear eating. I don’t even know why but I started fearing as I thought I would choke everyone I swallow. But anyways may 31st I had barium swallow test where they made me swallow a barium liquid which went fine but then when I swallowed barium pill it got stuck in esophagus and I pankiced because I saw it there stuck. So then on they made me have an endoscopy like 2 weeks later and they looked in esophagus and stomach and showed everything was absolutely fine inside which surprised me and the doctor said the pill seemed to have gotten stuck because you were very nervous and your anxiety was off the roof which it was during the barium swallow test. But anyways yea so they said I could eat anything I want but I still have my anxiety off eating, I am still scared to eat and I fear it could muscle problems in esophagus or something like that. I only swallow food with water most times but I mostly don’t eat as much as I am too nervous too swallow but some other days I feel good like last Saturday I ate almost my whole plate because I was feeling very good so I ate most of chicken with Rice and beans. But anyways for most times I struggle to eat and feel if I swallow food it will get stuck because of esophagus muscles like alachalsia or something like that. Can someone please tell me what’s happening. Anxiety or what?
