Recently I was referred to a local neurologist who mistakenly (I believe) diagnosed the condition as a form of epilepsy and prescribed an anti-seizure
med. I have never had epilepsy in any form
and only have this problem occasionally when eating (if I am not sitting up straight). I believe it is a growth/narrowing in my wind pipe of some sort that closes it when food goes through.
My PCP (HMO lingo) got the above information from the neuro and now does not want me to drive!
