Seems to be related to your throat or esophagus. Gagging or dysphagia can be caused by a number of problems – a throat muscle, nerve or minor blockage. Esophagitis could be a consequences of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or other digestive problem. Esophagitis can also be caused by an infection. Esophagitis is treated by medication and dietary changes. Your doctor will probably recommend you see an ENT or gastroenterologist.

Hi..
It looks like some obstruction or swelling anywhere in your digestive tract..
So it is advisable to consult a Gastroenterologist and get evaluated.
An endoscopy can be done for further confirmation..

Regards.
