Second opinion] oOccasionally when I eat something fairly solid and fail to chew it properly like and apple or sometimes a sandwich a bite of which i amy have swallowed before breaking it up in my mouth. I am aware of the mass descending in my oesophagus and at a point mid chest if I fail to take a deep breath to get oxygen to my brain I will faint. Generally it happens whilst seated at a table with no alarming consequences. I concluded that the bulk was restricting a blood vessel. Have you any views on this

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 8 months ago

the mass most likely is not restricting blood vessels

it is most likely a large food bolus passing through your esophagus and stretching your esophagus causing this pain in your chest making it hard to take a deep breath

you should make sure you chew your foods up well and swallow smaller bites

and drink water with your food which can help the food go down

you shouldn't be experimenting with swallowing large amounts of food without chewing it well.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
