Throat Problems updated (Double update, please read)

Recently, I had complained about my abnormally small throat. Well, I just wanted to say... it has gotten so bad to the point where sometimes I have trouble BREATHING. I cannot swallow properly sometimes, and even FLUIDS have trouble going down my throat. Well, they don't get stuck like food, but I can feel them go down my through extremely slow. I am scared as hell. I am scared to eat. I am scared of choking again.

Just a few days ago, my mom, dad, and I had pizza for dinner. I only had 2 slices of pizza. Both my mom and dad had 3, maybe 4 pieces (they were small). My parents were done, and I was still halfway done my second slice.

My dad is taking me to the doctors either this week or next week. Please, tell me what you think and if you have the same problems

===============================UPDATE=============================

My dad is taking me to the doc tomorrow. I am excited, even though they may shove cameras down my throat, haha.

When you see this topic has "Triple update" I will tell you what the man in the white suit said.

Good luck. See if you can keep the video if any throatcams are used!

Haha thanks. But that wasn't done today. The doctor told my parents about 2 different throat specialist people. And she did mention dysphagia. But y'know, I cannot take another minute of this. I tried eating take out, but I couldn't swallow. So now, I am eating yogurt. I can swallow it, but It gets stuck coming down my throat. This is getting terrible. Absolutally terrible. Oh, and I doubt you were, but if you are planning to send me something like you did to goodhart, please do not. I don't think my parents like me talking to strangers about this, haha. Like they know NOTHING about this thread.
Yes, Dysphagia was one of the things I had suspected (sorry about how technical that article is, but it says it like it is).

My wife suffers from globus hystericus which is annoying but not dangerous.

Hmm.. Sometimes I had felt like I had symptoms of globus hystericus. It usually went away after half an hour though. But one time, the lump was followed by strept(?) throat. And awesome news. I still think I have dysphagia, but I found a way to swallow now. I can still feel my throat is like stiff.
Well, hopefully they can initiate something to make things easier for you.

Yep. I am happy now. My dad can now take me to a new Asian Resturant, I will be able to eat at the Phillies game I am going to on Saturday, and now, if I get hungery, I can eat again. BUt I have a feeling that things will still be stuck in my throat, but I can live with that for a longer amount of time I think
You know, you may be right about (maybe) having a combination of the two problems mentioned. I was just thinking, that hystericus or sensation can be exacerbated by anxiety and if you are anxious about it at all (food being stuck) it may make it worse. Food doesn't drop quickly from mouth to stomach (you may already know this, so ignore it if you do), but is slowly pushed down the esophagus by the muscles in there. It can take a bit of time to get down to the stomach for most anyone, So, eating too fast will make it worse too. THAT is a problem I have had over the years (eating so fast I feel like I end up with a backlog of food from stomach to throat). That isn't pleasant either.
Take care.

I have always eaten slow. It is my brother who always eats fast :) That 18 year old furry demon (he is VERY Hairy)

Sorry to change topics, but if you want to see my brothers hair, go to his YouTube

His video "Acoustic Song" is where his hair is the longest
Oh I am sure you eat slowly, but I was just comparing note with some of what I went through in my not so bright youth :-)
