the latest development with my spouse is that she is clearing her throat all the time.
She is not having troubles (that she has shared) with eating or drinking. But when she wakes up from a nap, or any sleep more that 30 minutes, she spends the first 10 or 15 minutes trying to clear her throat. She also does it while sleeping, and periodically throughout the day.
As far as I know, she is not aspirating saliva or mucous, but how would I know until it becomes an issue?
Is this the beginning of aspiration and choking? Is this how it starts? Is there anything I can do to help with the throat clearing? This issue, which my wife has not really accepted yet, is the most disturbing to me so far. Am I wrong to be so concerned?
Any input is appreciated.
