When im eating, after a few bites it feels like I can't swallow anymore and I have to drink a lot of water until it feels like a blockage is cleared?

In brief: Stricture
You have a blockage in your esophagus.
You need to see a doctor soon to figure out why. It could swelling, spasm, scarring or a growth.

An endoscopy is needed to tell what is going on. Cancer in the esophagus can have these same symptoms.
Dr. Matthew Keener
Also, please do not try to vomit up the food and let it go down over time. Over time self-alleviating the blockage could result in an esophageal tear which could be fatal.
