Swallowing

Posted , 6 users are following.

Does anyone find it difficult to swallow especially if they are particulllary anxious at the time.i was eating and swallowed and it kind of got stuck and I could not seem to swallow it although I wasn't choking, it was just kind of sitting in my throat. I took a drink and I swallowed. It's like I can swallow when I'm drinking but sometimes when I'm eating it happens. Xxx
