Thank you for visiting health24.com.
I suggest that you consult a general surgeon to have a gastroscopy done, in order to visualise the upper gastro intestinal tract, to exclude any pathology causing your symptoms.
You are suffering from dysphasia (difficulty in swallowing) and it is very important that you consult a surgeon to have the above test done.
Smoking and drinking can cause these problems.
