I have an issue that I don't know how to explain.

Customer Question
I have an issue...

I have an issue that I don't know how to explain. Periodically, I feel a rock in my throat that slowly rolls down and settles in the middle if my chest. It hurts for a few moments then goes a way. It's been intermediately since December. Not sure if it's worthy enough to see a doctor.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

My health is good. I'm 57 years. No other issues

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I'm good other than this annoying rock in my throat. Have you ever had a big piece of meet stuck in your throats and had trouble swallowing. That's the feeling.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
