Difficulty in swallowing certain foods, feeling of obstruction, does not go down even after swallowing saliva. How can I get rid of this?

Hey, I ve been having this problem for almost all my life, I just have trouble swallowing some foods sometimes liquids and when I m swallowing my saliva sometimes it doesn t go down so I have to try again, and it freaks me out when it doesn t go down, feels like its stuck and so I got to try again, and I was just wondering if there is any solution to this? Is there anyway I can get medical help or treatment for this kind of thing. It s been happening all my life, and It s been a big worry in my life, and It doesn t seem to get any better, I m worrying about this 24/7, and it just really bothers me, so I just really need some help to get rid of this problem I ve been having. Got any ideas?

You have selective Dysphagia means you have difficulty to swallow certain food.
There are various reason of it.The most common is achylasia or stricture formation or any pathology of oesophagus or some times it turns to functional also.
in your case the possibility of functional is much more as you have difficulty to swallow certain food not all.
You should go for consultation to doctor he will advised endoscopic examination to rule out any pathology or other test to diagnose it properly.
