Since May I've been having problems with eating and I've been having a tight feeling around my throat.
I can only eat 10 products without my throat feeling really tight or without coughing for hours. My throat gets a bit thicker as well.
I keep eating the same food every day of which I know it is safe to eat. My body feels weak and I am tired all the time. I have lost about 20 kgs over the last couple of months. I have seen doctors but they don't know what is causing this. I have had allergy tests done but they were likely not showing allergic reactions.
It has also happened that food that was safe to eat all of a sudden wasn't anymore.
Next week I have 2 long flights coming up and the last time I was on a plane in June I felt an enormous pressure on my throat and I struggled to breath during take off and landing.
Next to all of this I cough a lot.It's a lot of mucus that gets stuck in my throat. I'm very worried about my flight and would love to get some advise what to do. Thank you.

Acid Reflux Answer A63252
Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i believe its acid reflux that is causing feeling of something stuck in throat. You need to modify diet and lifestyle, be more active lose more weight to bring BMI below 25. Visit our GERD health center for further guidance.

Take care.
