Ultimately, you should be seen by your cardiology for an EKG to make sure there has not been any changes in your cardiovascular health. A stuck feeling is usually associated with dysphagia or esophageal pain, and occasionally it gets better with nitroglycerin. I would also recommend taking a Tums, Prilosec, or Nexium for acid relux in the meantime while you are scheduling an appointment for EKG.
