Sharp pain at the mid of back of deep breathing, occasional difficulty in swallowing food, food gets struck in throat. How can I overcome this?

At times I am finding it difficult to take a deep breath and find myself needing to yawn to try and fill my lungs but I am unable. I feel a sharp pain in the mid right of my back when I attempt to breath deeply. For about 2 years now, at various times I have been unable to swallow food with it getting stuck in the upper parts of my throat and I usually need to bring part of it back up or at times I am able to swallow after a significant amount of time (10min - 1 hour). I feel very distressed with the inability to breath deeply and the episodes of being unable to swallow food.

Welcome to healthcare magic forum.

Thanks for sharing your concern with us.

Inability to take deep breath may be due to respiratory obstructive disorders associated such as- COPD,Bronchial asthma,broncho pneumonia etc.

I would advice you to get a thorough clinical evaluation done by a Pulmon ologist.

Difficulty in swallowing food can be due to-throat infection,tonsillitis.

Usually in such cases,bronchodialators along with cough expectorants has to be administered.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
