THROAT PROBLEM

Hi there,
My problem is not complicated. The problem I have is that when I eat, up to 3/4 hours later, I can still feel food in my throat. Even if I drink water, it still feels as if the food is lodged in my throat.

Dear Heather
It may be worth your while to have a gastroscopy ( scope of the esophagus) - This can be caused by acid reflux, narrowing of the esophagus or esophagus spasm. The doctor also needs to examine your thyroid to see if this is enlarged.
