So sometimes when I eat I will get this intense pain in my throat. I have to basically make myself throw up to get rid of it every time so I am pretty sure it is food getting cought somewhere. It has been like this for as long as I can remember. It usually happens when I eat things like rice, chicken, salad(specifically lettuce). I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO ANYMORE! This shit keeps me from going out to restaurants with friends because when it happens I cant eat anymore and have to go hang out in the bathroom and wait for it to fix itself and that can take anywhere from 1 minute to HOURS! If I try to drink something to wash it down it hurts more and makes it worse!!! It is happening to me as I type this and I had to "let go" of my dinner and now my parents think I am sick or something. FUCK I HAVE SEARCHED HIGH AND LOW ON GOOGLE. http://yourtotalhealth.ivillage.com/food-c...-in-throat.html That's the only relevant information I found. I did have tonsel problems at one point when I was a kid, cant remember exact age, and the doctor had said "if this keeps up you might need them removed." FUCK! No way in hell I can afford surgery or even a ENT visit! I don't want to tell anyone because I don't even know how to explain it!
