Having difficulty swallowing. I develop coughing or hiccups afterwards. Sometimes food gets stuck in my throat, etc.
Probably you may have stricture oesophagus or barrett oesophagus or achalasia cardia.
So better do an Upper GI endoscopy.
Consult an Gastroenterologist.
Hiccups are due to irritation of diaphragm. as nerves vagus and phrenic supplies the diaphragm, stomach and oesophagus. food irritation in stomach cause hiccup.
Cough is most probably due to irritation of stagnant food particles in throat.
My wife has psin in her diaphragm and wxtreme nausea. What could it be ?
Thats pain and nausea.
Thanks for posting.
If this is chest pain, then it could very much be gastro-esophageal reflux disease(GERD). Some anti gastritis medications like omeprazole and antacid should offer some relief. Please, follow up with your doctor for examination confirmation and prescription. Feel free to post a more deailed desscription of symptoms and request for more advice.
