Happy 2009 everyone!   Last night after eating sunchips i felt like 1 was stuck in my throat.  i waited a few hours, drinking water & eating bread but nothing worked so i went to the ER.  The x-ray & catscan showed something, the Dr said there was something there but he couldnt tell exactly what it was - it looked like a scar in my esophogus.  He gave me a partial diagnosis of esophagitis & said if it was something else theyd call me today, i didn't get a call.  several months ago i did swallow a tiny bit of glass during a seizure, but that damage has healed already so i dont understand this.  ive been tested for GERD & dont have it.  Any advice greatly appreciated, thank-you.

I would folllow up with your ENT as soon as you can get an appointment.  I would not want to guess if the physicians can't figure it out.

If you have difficulty with your throat swelling please return to the ER.

Take care
