I have been twitching since 2012 and I still do. I got an EMG about 3 month ago and was normal.
Now what's freaking me out is that for the past three days I have been having trouble swallowing
I am not choking on water or food but when I try to swallow I feel my muscles are stuck and don't initiate the movement and sometime I feel it works fine.
When I attempt to swallow without any food or water sometime I can't swallow and then shortly I am able to do it
I am not sure what's happening.
Does it look like bulbar stuff going on. I am really freaked out

I feel my reflexes are not working. And if I swallow more than once at the same time I can't swallow

sounds like a typical anxiety reaction that many have reported on this site over the years, including me. normal emg 3 months ago is the key to your health. go see your doctor if you are really concerned.

Thank you garym
But my problem is real. I feel that my swallowing reflexes don't work
I feel they are numb sometime and I can't swallow whatsoever
I went to ent and after examination of my throats he told me
That my vocal cord muscle are normal and he don't suspect anything sinister
But what I don't understand is why my reflexes don't work
And I feel I am going to choke. It's really scary
And the more I think about it the more I feel they are
Not working and I will choke
I keep testing myself and I have been drinking tones of water
Everyday to see if I will choke
