Mine is pretty much how you describe it. But I also have trouble with water, and very often when nothing is in my mouth. Just trying to swallow like normal is difficult. It's like I "get stuck" and have to wait to be able to do it. Sometimes I panic, because I know I have nothing in there to swallow except saliva, yet you would think there was a golf ball in there.
I have not been officially dx-ed with MS, but I have nearly all the symptoms
. When I was reading on drop foot and clonus, I really freaked. I have had that for at least 6-7 yrs. I just always thought it was normal. I was told many yrs ago, that "fat shakes, muscle doesn't", so I thought that was why. DUH. I have like no body fat. I had it checked and the person doing the test said I have the body fat of an Olympic athlete.
Sorry, to much about me.
I hate the swallowing thing. Makes me dread eating. I choke too.
My very best to everyone
