Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
I would come up with these possibilities for this symptom of difficulty in swallowing , these includes.
1 The first possibility is of acute gastritis
.Diagnosis can be confirmed by upper G I endoscopy
. As I have noted in so many cases that tension and anxiety
develops erosion of esophageal surface . This erosion causes difficulty ( feeling a sensation of difficulty in swallowing) in deglutition .
2 As there is fibromyalgis and drugs ( pain relievers ) for this develops gastritis and this may be the reason of difficulty in swallowing.
3 Tumor in esophagus
, diagnosis can be confirmed by esophagoscope .
Try raising the head of your bed 4 inches with blocks . Avoid greasy , fried , spicy food .
Also take some antacid ( oxetacaine in them is the best) but if symptoms are sever you may need drugs like proton pump
In my opinion consult a physician and get his opinion.
Good luck. Dr. HET
