Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

Painful swallowing



I am 27 years old and for about the last 10 years sometimes when I swallow my throat gets tight and I get what feels like a lump. It starts at the bottom of my throat and if i relax for a few minutes sometimes it goes away but most of the time it moves to the top of my throat and it hurts to swallow, yawn, talk and even turn my head. The pain is enough to bring me to tears and usually lasts for about twelve hours and it mostly occurs if I swallow when i`m laying down.
