Our expert says:
It could be an esophagus spasm due to stress but it may also be an enlarged thyroid, so I think your doctor should have a look. If he thinks it is an esophagus spasm, an antispasmodic and anti-anxiety medication may be necessary. If you are a smoker or have heartburn, you may need to have a gastroscopy to see if you have acid reflux that may be irritating the esophagus.
