This is a pretty new one to me. In the last month or so I've had some real problems swallowing. I used to be able to get all my morning meds down in one gulp, but now I'm swallowing them one at a time with tons of water, and some of them still get caught in my throat. Once they are stuck, I can't wash 'em down with anything...water gets into my throat but then comes back up, food doesn't even go down no matter how well chewed. I'm sitting here right now feeling like I've got a rock lodged in my throat from pills I took 2 hours ago. It isn't causing any problem with breathing, so it is not like I'm choking or any thing. The problem isn't just with pills either. I was eating Rice Crispies of all things and it felt like they got lodged in my throat...Rice Crispies! Any one else have problems remotely like this?
