Everytime I eat, I get something stuck in my windpipe and in really bothers me!?
Everytime I eat, I get something stuck in my windpipe. It's become more and more easier to happen since days ago. I had a doctor look at it, but he didn't say anything was abnormal. Now, I can not eat anything that is solid because it will get stuck in my windpipe. It happens in the left part of my mouth and I was starting to think that it might not be my windpipe and the food just gets stuck on the left side of my mouth for some reason because I never cough and i can breathe fine. Can anyone tell me what is happening to me?
Additional Details
I did have some trouble breathing one day after a wierd noodle accendent when in got into my windpipe or what I think it went down, but after taking some chest congestion medician, I felt better. But the breathing problem only happened 2 days after the the noodle was gone. My parents say that the noodle that went down my windpipe had nothing to do with my breathing problem. This is when it started, everytime I eat I get food stuck in my windpipe, but I can breathe fine. I don't get what's going on cause this has never happen to me.

You most likely have a problem with your epiglottis. The epiglottis is a flap that immediately covers your windpipe when you swallow to keep food from getting into your lungs, and if you are constantly getting some in there, I would like to think there is something wrong with the flap that is supposed to keep it out. There is probably no home remedy for it, other than chewing and swallowing very slowly, so I would recommend consulting a specialist and seeing what's up.
BTW, the first doc is a quack, because if something wasn't abnormal, then you wouldnt be coming to see him now would you?

Maybe you are simply eating too fast or not chewing well enough?

If you got a noodle stuck in your windpipe and it you couldn't cough it up and you aspirated it then it would cause you breathing problems. If you developed a low grade fever withn 24 hours after this incident occured then you could have gotten an infection in your lung from the aspiration and that is why you don't feel well......As for the reason you are aspirating when you eat....the best way to find out the reason for this is to see an ear/nose/throat doctor (ENT) or a speech pathologist who will do a swallow study on you and watch through an x-ray type of machine as you swallow different things and it will tell you what types of food that cause you difficulty to swallow and basically why. It is called a swallow study or they could do a barium swallow. Regardless you need to get to the bottom of this. Aspriration can lead to pneumonia that can lead to really really bad news. Good luck..
