Re: Trouble swallowing...food gets stuck on soft palate
Kyle, about your gag reflex problem, I have the same problem (though only when I'm eating). My gag reflex started overreacting a couple years ago where even if I had food in my mouth, I'd gag, and I'd have to sit there still for a minute before I could swallow. I noticed it was connected to my seizures (I have epilepsy), and before they were controlled, the seizures spread to other parts of my body including my throat. When my seizures were more under control with meds, my gag reflex went back to normal, and only acts up when my seizures are acting up.
Maybe try to get an EEG done, to see if there's any abnormal brain activity...
