I am having pain in my throat and chest while drinking water and sometimes feels like heart has stopped, pain in chestbone and throat when drinking water or food. I suffer from allergic bronchitis. Is it related to food pipe pain or how.

What you have is called dysphagia. Patients usually complain of dysphagia to both solids and liquids. Dysphagia to liquids, in particular, is a characteristic of achalasia. Other symptoms of achalasia include regurgitation, night coughing, chest pain, weight loss, and heartburn. But there are many other things which can cause dysphagia. But yes the problem is in your food pipe. Which needs to be checked. You need to get a upper GI endoscopy done and consult a Gastroenterologist asap.
