What Just Happened Here?

OK, I just got back from my PCP because of that swallowing episode (bedtime swallowing - ER) at bedtime last week. First he told me that my larynx had closed and that could happen for a number of reasons. He said next time, take some maylox (OMG). Then he had me blow into this thing (spirometer i think) and did a chest x-ray.

I feel like it's my throat and not my chest. Anyway, my x-ray was great and the spirometer showed I had 115% lung capacity - (better than expected for someone my age) and that I released a little less - 92%. So, I was sent home with a script for Advair (an asthma inhaler) and a muscle relaxant - robaxin. Ugh, I really felt like this was throat related, not sure what to think now.

I walked out of his office thinking, what on earth just happened here?

Re: What Just Happened Here?

Oh, I've only said that about 4,000 times

Can you go and see an ear, nose and throat specialist?

I never understand why Drs group every person on this Earth into one category---you either need anti-depressants or some stomach acid medicine.

I'm having flashbacks here of my GP that just gave me that look like "Hmmmm, that's really strange". If it doesn't fit in their top 10 of typical symptoms, they just don't know what to do.

I'm so glad I'm not married to a Dr.

Re: What Just Happened Here?

I had a problem with choking. They took me to the ER where the NP pronounced that all I needed to do was chew my food better. Uh, thanks. Despite the fact that I had a huge goiter---their next suggestion was to see a gastroenterologist. I was wondering if they were just working through the alphabet of specialties.
I hope you are experiencing some sort of relief.
