Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 7 months ago.
Hi,As per your description,you may have esophagitis. And as you are unable to swallow fluids now then this is a medical emergency and there is a risk of food pipe perforation or aspiration of fluids in the respiratory tract which can be very dangerous.I will highly advise to visit ER without any delay so they can do immediate examination along with few important scans and then treatment accordingly. There might need to do endoscopy for removal of food stuff depending on the examination findings.Even you can't tolerate any medicine at home.You may require injections and IV fluids if necessary.Visit ER ASAP.Feel free for further queries.
