In january i was eating spaghettios n some started to go down my throat with out me swallowing, i wasmt choking but I thought I was n coughed them back up n reswallowed. After that I had issues n felt like I couldn't swallow. Like I was freezing while swallowing. I had a good routine at first , I would eat only right after waking up because I felt that was the only time I was relaxed, my muscles were relaxed enough n it was the only time swallowing felt natural again. Well I was doing so good that I was starting to eat little things here n there after being up all day n they were going down fine !, it's like I retrained my brain that it was okay to swallow. Well the other night I was eating chips n sent them to the back of my throat n I couldn't swallow it's like my reflex was delayed or wasn't working, I freaked coughed them back up n reswallowed. It was like my swallowing reflex stopped half way. It's been a nightmare bc since then , I'm only able to get liquids down and sometimes thats a little bit of a struggle n eating noodles I literally chew them into little small bites n even then it's hard getting them down. N it's affecting me even after waking up. It's like I'm not trusting my body to swallow bc I feel that my reflex will stop halfway n I'll choke. It's a nightmare. Someone plz help. I've heard if I can swallow liquids my reflex works just fine. Ugh
