Re: Trouble swallowing?

Thanks doc,

I get worried because I hear all the hype around neck adjustments and problems with health, stroke, etc. I know a lot of it is hype though! I know on Chirobase there is a big scare about such things although I try to not get caught up in that!

Anyway....back in September it started to feel like sfood was getting vaught in my through....as if stuck in a flap or something.
Then..after I started having scary symptoms ion October, with pain in my feet, numbness, tremors, nausea, weight loss, floaters in the eye, and a little trouble swallowing...I started seeing a chiropractor and then noticed the noises in my neck. I thought maybe the noises in my neck and the increase in difficulty swallowing could have been related to the adjustments. Maybe not.

Anyway, I haven't seen any doctors specifically for the swallowing so I am not sure who that would be! It can be scary when the muscle that control swallowing are not cooperating, like they are frozen. Neurological? Physical? Anxiety? Not sure......but I do have some reflux with certain foods I eat. Should I see a specialist?

Thanks!!!!!!!!
