I had an episode yesterday evening, while eating a take away, when I could not swallow. It felt as though my throat was blocked and nothing could get past. This went on for quite a while although I was breathing normally. Eventually, it cleared. little by little and I could swallow normally. I am sure other people must have experienced this and would be grateful for any comments or advice on how to avoid it happening again or how to lessen a reoccurrence. Thanks.
