I'm not able to eat any solid food, not even bread, cause it doesn't matter how much I chew the food, even tiniest pieces will stay on the right side of my throat and then heartburn will start and anxiosity when I try to flush it down, but it doesn't go down and it stays there for 2-3 days too. it's very annoying, cause I feel like I'm gonna choke and it's not a pleasant feeling. I just wanna be able to normally eat again :(

I'll write the rest of my questions in 'other comments' section

It would be a good idea to consult with a gastroenterologist. They may do an endoscope or a barium x-ray study to see if there are any growths or pockets in your esophagus. It may be possible that you may have a polyp (an outgrowth into the esophagus) or a diverticulum (a "pocket" in the side of the esophagus). Good luck
