Am I the only one?

Hello, I was wondering if anyone else swallowed like me?

I send a bit of my saliva to the back of my mouth the starting of my throat but it does not go down, then I swish the food or liquid in my mouth and then swallow.I have only just started this as I had a swollen esophagus and had trouble swallowing.After that when I started eating again it takes me for ever to eat, and I don't know how to swallow any different to how I said above.Is it bad for me to be swallowing like this?If so how do I change it as I have gotten used to it in the last 2-4 weeks.Thanks alot, and if anyone swallows like this or swallows similar or had the same or similar thing I have had then please share, I want to know if I am the only one, and if it is bad.Thanks alot.

Re: Am I the only one?

it looks like you have taught yourself to swallow this way and its become behavioral. does it interfere with life/do you not feel good eating this way? you say it takes you forever so i assume it itnerferes. perhaps you should either re-teach yourself to swallow properly or see someone (behavioral psych?) to help you regain normal swallowing. its only been a few weeks so maybe it wont be so hard to fix. but i would take care of it now so that it doesnt bother you for life and so that you dont keep teaching your body and your reflex to act this way. you can check out some of the posts, including my own, under 'fear of swallowing food' to get an idea how annoying this can be!
