For the past two years I have had difficulty with swallowing. It has progressively been getting worse. For about a week now, I cannot swallow anything except liquids. Anything that is not a liquid literally gets "stuck" in my throat. It just "sits" there and I can't seem to bring it up or down. Eventually it goes down after repeated swallowing....by then I am usually broken out in a cold sweat and shaking badly. It is so scary that I am just surviving on Ensure and other liquids because I'm so terrified of choking. I have had a couple of MRI's. They told me that I had "multiple cysts" in my brain that may or may not be normal for me. I have a follow up MRI (it's been a year since my first) to compare the two and see if there are changes in the cysts. I am also scheduled for a barium swallow. I have done the whole endoscopy "thing" twice. They found minimum reflux issues and I take Nexium daily. Has anyone else been through anything like this? I am so scared and it would be so helpful if anyone else has had a similar experience.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
