I have Sjogrens and have for a long time. I have been having severe mouth dryness. The other night I was eating dinner and I always take a drink before I take a bite. This time the food got stuck in my esophagus. I was scared and tried everything to get it till go down or bring it up with no luck. I had to call 911 The paramedics said they were taking me to ER. The ER doc gave me to shots and a nitro pill under my tongue. It was suppose to relax the esophagus but didn't. A gastrointerologist and anesthesiologist came in and had to put me under to do an emergency endoscopy. It was 5 and a half hours later. I woke up and the doctor said she saw it and it went down. I really thought I was going to die. I was so scared. I was eating sourdough bread. Never again. I have taken salavart, evovoc too but it didn't help me. I'm now paranoid with every thing I eat. Has anyone had this happen to them or have really fry mouth and eating isn't always easy from our mouth dryness. I have been eating soft food. I dontbwwant anything like that to happen again. Any thing I can do or not to do. Its tough for some f usv.
