    Can you describe what happens with a bit more detail?

    How far do things go down before they get problems?

    Would you have trouble with any or all of  plain water, fizzy water, marshmallows, dried biscuits?

    Do you suffer any pain?

      I suddenly choke for no reason when eating or drinking but not regularly. I have choked on raw apple pieces and today on a warm juice drink. I find things difficult to swallow then. Dried biscuits and dried food often also problem 2. Just discomfort sometimes.

      I apprecaite your care. Thanks.

    Obviously there is something wrong, and my guess os that it might need a specialist to sort things out with special tests.   I would feel inclined to write down carefully the times when you have had trouble, and then visit your GP and give the whole story.   There may be an examination of your throat,  and they may find a strightforwtrad explanation, but you need to start on that road to acheive the right diagnosis.   It may be some sort of motility / achalasia problem but it might also be another problem perhaps.

    It sounds very distressing and I hope it is sorted out for you soon
