A 41-year-old male asked:
Why do pills feel like they are in your throat for a few minutes after taking them even though they aren't. Don't feel stuck just like there is a sensation for a min. Is this normal and why?

GERD?: You may not be drinking enough fluid when you take pills, try taking them with applesauce or food. You may have a condition called dysphagia, see your provider to check this out!
