Hi Belljar,
Sorry to hear that you have to struggle with a scary diagnosis and no explanation by your doctor!  Hopefully you'll get things cleared up when you call. Let us know what you find out. 
Unfortunately, I can't help you regarding the test, as I've never even heard of it.
I'm sure you've been searching the internet and have read anything out there, but my search discovered this URL:
Let us know what your doctor says.

Hey Denise
Thanks.... so funny thing is...that is the place I went....grrr..

I left a message and hopefully I will get a rely by tomorrow. I think it has something to do with airway protective reflexes and risk for aspiration. When I spoke with the dr he said he felt that the extreme swelling of my throat was the problem and that once that swelling decreased , I should be feeling much better. He also said it will take 3-6 months for resolution. He also recommended the very strict induction diet by Dr Koufman.
