Avatar n tn For the last two or three months I have had to eat very, very small bites, wait between bites, and still sometimes it seems to back up in my throat. Swallowing liquids seems to be the worst. After eating I have thick saliva on my tongue,and this stuff in my throat caused my mouth to produce excess saliva so I swallow and swallow (kind of like when you are going to vomit). Once or twice a day now this saliva comes back up.
Avatar n tn hi, i have a question for you i sometimes have problems swallowing food. I would have this feeling as if the food is stuck in my throat and it would start to make me cough and gag as if i were choking. I don't know what could be wrong. On my right side of my neck it feels like there is a little lump but i been having that for a few years. Do you think that small lump on my right side of the neck could be causing me to have difficultly swallowing.

Avatar m tn I am 28 years old male, I am having problems swallowing food roughly 3-5 minutes after starting to eat. I experience feeling of throwing-up as I swallow (my stomach feels fine, but my “throat” act as if it is rejecting the food!). There is no associated pain during swallowing, and the only way to ease the process is to drink liquids with food. All of this is preventing me from eating large quantities of food necessary to gain weight since I am extremely underweight.
400099 tn?1282954864 Swallowing problems are very common in MS. I have had them too, off and on. Occasionally, when I'm having this problem during the day, I have had some scary incidences of waking up feeling like I couldn't breathe at night. I'm not sure if there's a connection or not. Have you had this problem before? Did the doctor mention anything about medicines to treat this as well?

799695 tn?1257579598 Has anyone ever had throat muscle contractions which pressed on the gag reflex and made you throw up? I've had swallowing problems before, but now it seems like my throat muscles are becoming spastic and just contracting and making me throw up. I also just got over the swine flu a few weeks ago and have heard that illness like the flu can bring about a relapse. I know i'm not sick from the flu, because I can clearly feel my muscles tightening in my throat. Is this common?
1064115 tn?1257972917 There's been some speculation about MS causing GERD - if the muscles at the top of the stomach that control the valve weaken, then it would open and send gastric juices into the esophagus. I don't know about that. But one of my enduring MS symptoms has been an esophageal spasm - usually triggered by indigestion.
Avatar m tn I have become increasingly concerned with the back wall of my throat/tonsil area. After a bout of Strep and mono (though I will add that the sore throat was NOT severe in either cases oddly enough, I was swallowing fine and with relatively no pain, just slight irritation), I had noticed my throat seemed very "beat up" per se. Here is a current image of my mouth: Notice the seemingly cluster of bumps on the back wall, and overall "redness?
Avatar n tn m thinking that after 2 months, I should not be experiencing either of these problems. I know the cause of the low blood calcium, but not the throat problem and I dont know the prognosis for either of them. Please give me a realistic idea when, if ever I might expect either problem to go away.
