Hi, sorry to hear you are having such problems. I have have GERD and celiac disease. The last time I had an endoscopy the doc stretched my esophogus because I too was choking on everything. It did help for a while, but has returned so that I have trouble swallowing pills and even fluids. It does help if you take a drink of water before a bite of food, but I choke on that sometimes too. Wish there was an easy answer but I sure haven't found one. Good Luck to you!
