For the last 3 months, I feel a flap of flesh when I swallow. It is mostly on my left side but sometimes in center and right side as well. I don't feel it when I eat food but it is present when I swallow saliva or fake the action of swallowing. I had an ENT insert camera through nose and he could not find anything. He said it could be due to acid reflux and said that the top of esophagus looks slightly swollen. On a side note, I tried looking down my throat with light and a good mirror and I could see my epiglottis - It is not uvula since I compared images and I know its the epiglottis. Could it be the epiglottis that I am feeling? Can I cause harm to it by excessive swallowing? What should I do next?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
