What causes difficulty swallowing?

I ve been to the ER 5 times for difficulty swallowing. Every time I eat something it feels like something is in my throat, I have anxiety disorder so I tend to dwell on the fact that I feel like something is stuck in my throat (reasons I ve been to the ER) my doctor says its just anxiety, but it doesn t feel like it to me. I m scared to eat!

Welcome to HCM.
I am Dr Rakesh Sharma answering your query.
I can understand your concern.
If you have complaints and the doctor could not see any thing wrong on clinical examination then the best thing is to go for an endoscopy.

Good luck.
