If this is a new problem and it is causing pain then it needs direct visualization with a fiberoptic camera (performed by an ENT physician) and possible CAT scan of this area.

Sometimes people change the way they swallow and this can cause discomfort. There are "speech and swallow"  therapist that can help analyze your swallowing and devise a therapy routine to improve your symptoms.


Good luck!
