I haven't been able to eat for almost 3 weeks food felt like it was sticking in my throat even yogurt and soup. After seeing the ENT and having a nose scope he showed me that the posterior part of my larynx was inflamed and swollen due to reflux and possible LPR (I am sure LPR is the problem as I have all of the symptoms).

Well over the last few days I have managed soup, a biscuit dipped in tea, houmous, pate, korma sauce and tikka massala sauce (naughty I know) and today a few crisps! Although it still feels like its sticking and I can't managed much because it seems to slow just above my collar bone and I get the choking sensation. Could this be a motility problem too? This worries me alot.

Although I am happy that I have managed more than liquids, I am still wondering if I am ever going to be able to eat normally again?

One of my favourite things/hobby before this was cooking and trying new things. I love cooking and eating at restaurants and this has made me so sad that I can do this anymore. I see food everywhere I go because I can't have it. sad

Am I ever going to be able to eat nice things again?

Hi Kay,

I also got this from LPR but it did develop into mild dysphagia, I suggest you ask your doctor to up your dose of ppi's and make sure you are taking them twice a day, gaviscom advance is also very good in protecting your throat as is alkaline water. Hope that you feel better soon!
The choking sensation at your collar bone is the crycopharyngeal muscle trying to close tight - it spasms - to protect your throat from the acid.
