I am 20-something female who woke one morning in Feb. and was unable to eat. The food feels like it gets stuck after the first swallow. If I put lots of butter or sour cream on very soft food, I am able to eat a small amount.
The drs can't figure out what is wrong with me. I have had almost every test in the book. I have had dozens of labs to check for auto-immune diseases and esophogeal tests to check for achalasia. Everything comes back normal, except a lab for Sjogrens was slightly elavated.
I have IBS with constipation and GERD. One test showed my esophagus was "slightly sluggish" and that I swallowed normally 78% of the time. The doctors stated that even so, I should be able to eat normally.
I have lost weight and am living on a soft food diet. This has been going on for nearly 6 months and I am at a total loss. I read recently that IBS could cause trouble swallowing. I would like to know if ANYONE has ANY symptom that I have or has ANY IDEA what could be wrong with me.
