swallowing scares

Postby Brian_B on August 4th, 2003, 1:17 am

with a lot of posts lately about people saying they think they have trouble swallowing, I can relate

lately Im going through scare where I think I cant swallow. BUT its only when I think about it, like sitting here now its hard to swallow saliva because Im sitting here thinking about it

when I dont think about it, like eating dinner I have no trouble swallowing, its only when I have to actually sit and think about it

So it's an obvious evidence that it's psychological problem.

I would have to agree with Pole. Anxiety will make you think and feel some pretty scarey stuff.

But you may want to rule out some obvious stuff like GERD or acid reflux. These things can easily cause swallowing trouble. You don't even have to have "heart burn" or an acid taste in your mouth to have these things. If it really bothers you, speak to your Dr. or an upper GI Dr.

I didnt mean I thought it was ALS or anything else bad

I was just saying for me sometimes I think I have trouble swallowing when I really do not
