Default Lump in throat constantly-feels like something stuck in throat.

I had noticed about 30 minutes after dinner last night it felt like something was stuck in my throat-almost like food was lodged in there. I have drunk tons of water since then, hot drinks, eaten more food, and nothing will budge this stuck in throat feeling which has now been over 24 hours.

Could this by chance be a first symptom of als? I have never had this before and I really don't know where it came from.

I cannot say here the things it might be a symptom of, but ALS is most definitely not one of them. As they say here "Read the stickies"....

And how exactly do you jump to a terminal disease from one benign symptom?

Most likely allergies, onset of a cold, GERD or tonsillitis. If it is not better tonight, make a doctor's appointment.
