Does anyone feel this sensation that they they can't breath when the eat certain foods. Like they are getting stuck. My doctor did a endo and she said that I didn't have a stricture. It has happened to bad where I can't catch my breath.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

Unfortunately I have a lot of experience with your problem. Have they suggested doing a barium swallow test or a manometry test? Even if they don't see anything on the EGD it may show up during a barium swallow. The manometry would let them know if there is a muscle problem in your esophagus. Unfortunately so GI doctors aren't very thorough. My first one wasn't. He didn't do anything but an EGD and told me everything looked fine. I kept having reflux issues and food getting stuck so I switched doctors after 6 months of no answers.
I hope you get some answers and relief.
Take care,
