I have a slightly different problem. I too frequently have problems swallowing
when I eat too fast. The food seems like it gets stuck and doesn't want to go down. Usually a beverage will help get things moving, then I'm all right. The other day I started to come down with a cold. Instead of the usual sore throat
, I had the feeling I was being choked. I didn't have trouble breathing, just swallowing. The saliva felt as if it wouldln't go down very easily.
