Had possibly stretched throat causing food to be stuck in a pocket in throat. Suggestions?

Hi, A few days ago I swallowed some pasta and quite possibly stretched my throat so now when I swallow it feels like my drink or food gets stuck in a little pocket in my throat. My mom had the same thing happen to her 30 years ago and throws up if she eats too much now and has acid reflux when she sleeps if her bed isnt raised high enougb.

reflux is different and the feeling after eating pasta is different.
See when we eat hot food it goes in where the mucosa is not as tough and strong as the mucosa in mouth and gets injured very easily.
then even though the food material like pasta goes done the feeling of burning or abnormal feeling do continues for some time like 7-10 days.
for reflux if you have it then take this treatment-----
Tab. Mucinac 600 once daily
Tab.Omeprazole +Domperidom two times a day half an hour before meals
Syp. antacid gel 2 tsf two times a day half an hour before meals
multivitamin twice daily
Keep head end of bed elevated.
Avoid alcohol, Smoking
Do brisk walking daily
Go for walk after dinner
Avoid spicy food
Avoid late night coffee
follow up after 7 days.
