Re: Swallowing issues and throat stretching?

I seem to recall that I had a good friend in high school who had a "hyperactive" esophagus.... The connection between his brain, his esophagus and his mouth was messed up so the timing was off on his swallowing. He damn near choked to death a few times because all the working parts were not operating in unison. It was actually like a motor cortex problem. But he had other problems. There was a lot more wrong with him than just his swallowing. Pretty sure he had ADHD or dyslexia too.

Re: Swallowing issues and throat stretching?

My dad had a very bad outcome from this procedure. The surgeon nicked an artery (his esophagus wall was very thin due to acid reflux) and it required a big deal emergency operation to save his life.

I'm only telling you this because as others have stated, you should know exactly what you're dealing with and why you're having this procedure done. It is a common procedure but still not without some risk.

Had the procedure this morning. No issues. I'm just tired and need a nap.

I am almost quite certain you are suffering from something called Globus Hystericus... I had it for a bit.. It sucks.. A brief overview, remember when you watched old school cartoons and a stressful or worrying encounter would make the cartoon character have a highly exaggerated lump in the throat that needed to be dealt with by a rather enunciated swallow (Contain the laughter everyone lol)..

Anywho, this is not a additional animation to illustrate the cartoonish nature, but an actual ailment. The thought and/or concern of stress will cause this feeling, which only get's worse when you think about it. Yes, thinking about it will make it quite worse. It completely blows, especially that feeling of futility in trying to clear your throat.

Eating will often give it an "Expanded", normal feeling like you just unclogged a pipe. But the relief soon turns to anguish as the noticeable feeling of being healed allows the closing thought to return, and the cycle continues.

Time and patience and other distracting activities will help move in the right direction. Fun fact, having a couple of beers and some good old laughing with friends and loved one's will draw your focus away which just might lead you to forget it enough to ignore it.
