The first time it really became a serious issue I ate too fast and food literally got jammed in my throat. I had to have it removed via “surgery” the next day. Couldn’t even swallow the saliva my mouth made (very long night). Basically they put a camera down your throat and check your esophagus / stomach lining. Like a colonoscopy for your mouth (can’t remember the technical name). They might be able to check another way based just on symptoms. I think the technical term is called “angina”. My issue first popped up when I was... 26? Hadn’t really noticed anything before then so I’m not sure if it randomly comes on or if me getting older made the symptoms more noticeable. A year earlier I thought I was having a heart attack dead center of my chest and that’s when I first heard the time “angina” and then the next year was the food jamming in my throat issue.
