I have been having a problem with swallowing foods for the past 9 months. It came on without me knowing why, and i started to feel that when i swallowed, the food didn't go down all the way and I found myself drinking a lot more to wash the food down.
Eventually, eating has become a daunting exercise and I mainly only eat soup and drink nutrition drinks, (even that sometimes i find hard to do)
I find that when I first wake up, I can get more down, but I have stopped eating a lot of things because of my problem.
I clear my throat a lot after "eating" because it feels blocked when it isnt.
Its beginning to be depressing, that I have no energy to do anything and feel trapped because Im so tired from not eating all the time. I found that i have rings under my eyes, and i have trouble focusing, as well as dry, cracked lips. I have started to take iron tablets to help, but it is seeming like there is no cure.
Ive been to doctors and had tests done and there doesnt seem to be a physical problem.
Is there any way to help this issue? I know there are no easy cures, but besides going to a psychologist, I dont know what to do.
