Difficult in swallowing and taking deep breath, scared to eat. Block in pipe?

Hello, so I am having a hard time breathing in deep and swallowing, when I do I get a pain in my chest/throat weather it's liquid or a solid, and I'm scared to eat anything big because I'm scared something will get stuck, like I'm having a hard time swallowing pills .. Could it be because I have been throwing up alot in the past couple days? Could something be blocking my pipe?

Hi thanks for your question.
One of most important point in history you have not mentioned is your age.Recurrent vomitting can cause oesophagitis (inflammation of food pipe) and laryngitis (inflammation of throat) which can give rise to difficulty in swallowing.and breathing.The other condition which give rise to difficulty in swallowing is cancer of oesophagus (food pipe) which needs to be ruled out by upper G I endosopy.
Hope this answers your question.
