:o Hello, I have been having difficulty swallowing pills lately, getting stuck in my throat but not to the point of getting choked. They sit there in my esophagus and melt causing a terrible sore throat. I have also had alot of burning of my eyes and stopped eating certain things that seem to get caught in my throat, dry things. I drink alot of water and have to drink after every bite of food to get it down. My doctor is testing me for Sjogren's Syndrome. I am also very tired and feeling the need to fall asleep alot. I have a history of GERD, allergies, fibromyalgia and Cervical Spondylosis. I can drink liquids okay but since having 2 pills stuck back there and enduring this pain on two occasions in the past week, I am afraid of taking anymore. Anyone else had this problem and diagnosed with Sjogren's or SLE? Thanks.
