HELP! for the last year I've had the feeling that there was something that was blocking my throat. I can eat just fine and the feeling seems to go away when I'm eating, but I'm scared I might have Esophageal cancer. I've seen a doctor when this first happened and they said it was nothing. I've seen a doctor a few more times after that and nothing. Today I was doing some google searches and I found this forum discussing the problem and I believe I might either have Cricopharyngeal spasm or silent/acid reflux! Sometimes when I swallow my saliva there's a clicking sounds while other times theres nothing.I'm really worried at this point, could anyone help me!View Thread
Sorry guys, I don't know how to edit. But here it is, I don't have feelings of Heartburn, difficulty breathing(I do have a problem where I know exactly which one of my nose is in the nose cycles because I can't breathe through the other one), weight loss(I actually gained 10 pounds over winter), difficulty eating(I actually don't notice this when i'm eating), abdominal pain, the feeling that food is in my chest, coughing, but I do get the feeling of being chocked, but never while I'm eating it just occurs mainly when I brush my teeth or when I'm showering and i breathe in the steam.View Thread
