Blocking And Swallowing

I've been trying really hard to eat well and hopefully it will also mean my health will get better.

My body is trying to scupper my plans and make me fail.
Every time I eat something a lump of it gets stuck just below my throat and sticks there, painfully. It is literally a blockage and I can't breath through it or swallow hard enough for it to dislodge and carry on down. This happens every time I eat and it's really off-putting. Who would enjoy eating if they felt like they were suffocating each time?

I'm hoping that when I put on weight not only will my body get bigger but so will my throat pipes. Hopefully enough to let the food go down.

Oh no, this sounds dreadful. Hope things improve soon. I found your blog on Britblog by the way.

This has happened to me before. Might be esophageal spasms. Worth looking into!

All right then, get you some soft, but fattening foods. I will say a prayer for you too :-)

What about those nutrition shakes available at a pharmacy for people who have similar problems?
