I have been lurking around on these forums for many years and now face a predicament of my own that I was hoping the community here could help me with. For the past 2 weeks I have had difficulty swallowing. It all started when I choked piece of chicken, since then I have been anxious to eat any solid food and when I do it feels like it's stuck at the back of my throat. I have issues with acid in the past for about 5 years, had the endoscopy 2 and half years ago which showed nothing but mild gastritis. I am 26 years of age, did smoke when I was younger and do occasionally smoke.
I am currently on a liquid diet and am at my Witt's end!! I have been to the GP who firstly prescribed antibiotics (Amoxiccilin) and now he has referred me for a second endoscopy. Furthermore, I have struggled with anxiety on and off over the years and do get panic attacks which makes me feel weak and it feels like there is a knot in my throat.
Is the swallowing thing all in my head ? Or is there something much more sinister behind all of this?
