I'm 29 and have GERD but for the last two months I've seemed to develop difficulty with eating. I often now cannot finish my meals because my throat starts to feel too tight and as if its closing up or like food is getting stuck in my throat and chest. I stop eating and have this lump in my throat sensation and wonder if food is stuck that will cause me to choke or suffocate. I even become afraid to swallow my own saliva when I have these throat symptoms. When I do end up swallowing it feels like I have to swallow hard to try to ease the lump in my throat sensation but it doesn't help at all. I've recently been taking prescript
ion Prilosec for about
two weeks but my symptoms are not improving at all. What is going on? Does this sound like acid reflux or is it something else? I'm afraid I'm going to die. Please help me.
