 I've been choking easily ,difficulty swallowing,constant headaches , feeling like if there is something stuck in throat.

Esophageal disorder: Your symptoms could be related to esophageal function versus a scarring or narrowing of the esophagus, and deserve further workup. How they tie into a headache is unclear. If your problem is actually swallowing then it could be neurologic. If it's that food gets stuck on the way down it's more likely the esophagus and you should see a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Dysphagia: Esophageal stenosis (narrowing) from scar tissue (strictures) is of itself not painful. However, depending upon how tightly narrowed the stricture may be, food can impact there (cause dysphagia). Usually dysphagia occurs with meats, bread. Pain on swallowing (odynophagia) may result. Esophageal spasm, dysmotility, ulcers, fungal infection (usually candida) are all possible. Best to get evaluated. ...Read more

Fatigue.Swelling in throat by my voice box like somethings stuck. Pressure in ear-swallowing. No pain, slight cough.  Dentist said virus, but not strep

Symptoms not related: You mention a variety of symptoms that are not related. Fatigue is multifactorial and is not related to your throat. The feeling of a lump in your throat can be related to acid reflux or muscle hyperactivity of the opening of the esophagus; sometimes related to anxiety. I am surprised that a dentist would make the diagnosis of a virus based on your symptoms. See a physician. ...Read more

I suspect anxiety: , psychosomatic illness. Continue taking your current meds. Ask your dr if Robitussin-DM and/or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) might help with your congestion. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) would also help u sleep. Chest pain could be stress related or from acid reflux. You're still young to have a heart condition . Get reassurance from your dr.
