    your having anxiety, it's very scary , I have acid reflux and when I'm having heartburn it will kick in worst at night , than I panic , and make,it more painful. sometimes it's better to lay down and do a circle motion message from your in your throat area and work all the way down . I feel that when I do that with warn hands, it help.

    HI Shelley. Yes i feel this as well at times. I'm not sure if its a combination of anxiety and Costro, but it is a frustrating feeling. I will take several attempts and remain calm and eventually I can swallow just fine. Hang in there. We are all in this together!!!  smile
