Hi ive been having swallowing problems for a few years now and it seems to be getting worse , I can deal with solids ok most of the time and is not a major problem at the moment , however I cant swallow liquids whenever I try to drink something I just hold it in my mouth, the swallowing reflex doesnt seem to work as I have to contort myself into rediculous positions for this to work and sometimes I just give up and spit it out.
My freezer is full of ice lollies and ice cubes which gives me some liquid at least , I would love to be able to glug down a pint of water or any liquid for that matter,
I was prescribed DOM PERIDONE for acid reflux which incidently I dont have , needless to say they didnt work.
Why is it that I can manage solids and not liquids , if anyone has any advice or can help me with this I would be sooooooo happy .
I am a 67 year old female who loves to socialise and dine out but this is becoming increasingly difficult
