as a short term measure-Are you allowed to chew gum? I find it keeps saliva coming. swallowing sounds like you have a small gullet? maybe you havn,t enough saliva to make food easy to swallow?  eat and drink at same time-water with everything,put food in your mouth chew and suck up water thru a straw whilst the food is in your mouth, SMALL quantites at a time maybe.. good luck
