I Have Been Having Lower Jaw Pain And Throat Pain....the Throat Pain Feels Like You Swallowed Something Too Big And It Hurts Going Down...has Anyone Else Every Felt This

I have been having lower jaw and throat pain. The throat pain feels like I've swallowed something too big and it hurts going down. Has anyone else ever felt this kind of pain? I have had some heart tests and I have failed all stress tests, though there were no blockages found. Does anyone have any advice?

Answer

Have you been tested for something called esophagitis? In esophagitis it can seem like food is getting stuck in your throat. You often have heartburn, acid reflux, etc. You might want to check out this link to learn more about it. You might also have an infection that is causing your lymphnodes to be swollen and interfere with your swallowing. That's something that a doctor would have to check out with appropriate lab tests and an examination.
