Re: scared to swallow food...whats wrong with me??
Hello, I COMPLETELY understand as I'm going through the exact same thing. I have panic attacks/ Panic disorder and this happens to me aswell. I have noticed mine has progressed in stage, first it started I couldn't eat stringy food ect spinach, beef schnitzel, then it was I couldn't eat in public, then it was I couldn't swallow my own saliva indoors when in public, now I'm struggling to get food down. My mind is always so concentrated on swallowing I feel gaggy and like it doesn't go down then I panic. I'm stressed 24/7 about it. This actually did happen this time last year, but then I got over it when I resumed school. But it came back when I had a panic attack around 3 weeks ago. I haven't yet found the solution but this is serious, and shouldn't have to be experienced. I suggest you do see a doctor, and I am currently waiting on a Psychiatrist to discuss anti anxiety pills, this might be the cause of why I feel like this.. <edit> happy to help eachother. best wishes to us xx
