Choking on Food and spitting phlegm. HELP me please.
I have had this problem for awhile but it seems to linger now. But the problem is sometimes when I eat, I feel like the food gets stuck at the base of my throat. I start to hack up phlegm and try to make myself throw it up. I also will get chest pains from it. Once it starts, it stays with me for a couple hours. The other day it became so bad I went to the quick care hospital, they recommended me to a GI. I have to wait until June 28th to get checked but I want some sort of answer as to what is happening sooner then that. Or at least something to prepare me for what might be the problem. I have been eating nothing but Klondike bars, and chips that i chew until its mush. I try to eat a meal but then I get that feeling again and stop before it gets worse. So please, help me find out whats wrong.
