I have some swallowing issues. Sometimes after I eat, I feel like my swallowing gets weak....It doesnt complete the full swallow. I have to force it at times.
I do get involuntary swallowing, but mostly when I am sleeping. It wakes me up.
My Dr. thinks this is due to LPR, and the acid having an effect on the delicate muscles and nerves in the throat area.
Im not sure what it is, or what causes it. I was worrying alot about it before I had my upper gi done, but since nothing "bad" showed up, Im trying to not be as anxious about it. I also read that stress can play apart in swallowoing problems. I do know that I get stressed out easily especailly over alot of these symptoms of gerds and LPR. Some can be quite scarey and painful, and some are just plain annoying!
PS....anyone get plugged ears?
