In Reply to: Choking From Food! posted by Donna on January 17, 2000 at 22:53:38:
: I have been choking from food for the past 2 years. Sometimes I even choke on my own salvia or water. Sometimes the food gets so hung and wont go down I have almost pasted out, so I go to the bathroom and try to lose it. My doctor ran a swallow test but they didn't find anything. He suggested I may be stressed or nervous, which is farther from the truth. Could anyone please give me some suggestions or would love to hear from someone experiencing the same symtoms.
My brother has this and since he is a very up tight person, the doctor said it was stress and told him to drink a little wine before he ate to relax. It worked sometimes. I have a book that I have been passing around my family and it really helped him and has helped me with my problems. It is well work buying.It is called "Irritable Bowel Syndrome & the Mind-Body Brain-Gut Connection" by Dilliam B. Salt II, M.D. I can't find the quote now when I need to but he says I.B.S. effects everything in digestive system from mouth to bottom end. Well worth the $20.00 I paid for it.
