Anything eaten feels like gets stuck in chest, get hiccups, unable to swallow anything, painful. Should I go to ER ?

Wondering if I should go to emergency room or just relax. Every once in awhile I will eat something and it will feel like it gets stuck in my chest somewhere possibly? I end up getting hiccups bad and if I swallow anything it gets worse and worse. Sometimes painfull. Tonight I had this happen and I ended up throwing up a few times. Now its been 5 hours and I still have the feeling. If I eat or drink anything I vomit it back up. Its not painfull or anything but irritating if that makes sense. Worried I need to go to emergency room. Is it something I can wait and see if it clears itself up or do I need to go right away? Thanks for any info you can give me.

Hello, thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
Every thing which you eat, seems stuck in chest somewhere.
Vomits whatever you eat or drink.
The things occurs at once i.e. not chronic.
Possibly and foremost reason is acute gastritis or oesophagitis. Before this problems you might have had food ( spicy or wine or food producing severe gastritis) , if you have these things just before this condition than need not to worry because simple antacid type medicine can cure you.
Sometimes there is a fold in oesophagus ( food pipe) , in that condition patient feels that whatever when he eats there is cough and thing comes out as he vomits.
In your's case possibly first type of situation may be.
Avoid fried food , spirit, smoking, stress, strain as these are causative reasons of this type of conditions.GOOD luck. Dr.Het.
