Whenever I swallow liquids it feels like my epiglottis is flicking some of the liquid back up. It feels like a trampoline in my throat. I can feel the epiglottis thump down and back up and it's not quite painful but it makes my throat a bit sore. I sometimes have problems with tiny pills getting stuck in my throat, even if I drink a lot of water, then the pill just dissolves back there and it tastes just awful. But for the most part it's liquid (even my own saliva) that just won't go down.
I have had the same problem. Mine has been just liquids also. I've had x rays, barium swallows, etc, and nothing. My doctor was convinced it was some kind of anxiety disorder, but the trial of medication did not relieve the problem. Now it comes and goes. And I live with it. It's very scary when you are unable to swallow your own spit. I am curious if they have figured out your problem.
