This would be a good question for your physician as you may have a swallowing disorder and I would not want to lead you astray and say yes it is...............please follow up with your physician.

Also, I am feeling like you need to practice some of the relaxation skills we have been sharing with you.  You appear to be a bit hyper this afternoon.

Remember the 7/11 breathing technique..............try it and maybe just picture the red stop sign to turn off the Health Anxiety.

Take care

It's probably a good ide to check with your doc as Kitt suggested. I find that the more anxious I am the more likely it is that everything "seizes up" and I can't swallow, breath or digest properly. It may be in part due to anxiety. I suggest, don't eat in a hurry! Or when you are (really) anxious.  Hope you get some answers...x
