Our expert says:
You may need to see a gastroenterologist - with a barium swallow x/ray they will be able to see where the food gets stuck and whether you have abnormal peristaltic movement of the esophagus muscle. It is unlikely that food will get stuck in your windpipe as there is a valve that closes off the windpipe when you swallow.
