Today at lunch, I choked and aspirated. It was a minor event and I got through it. I also had a very heavy feeling in my chest, like my esophagus was clogged. This frightened me and I started to look for an answer.
One of the other bloggers had the answer. In their posts, I saw the word "Dysphagia". I did some research on that word and "Bingo" I had the answer. Chocking, unable to control food or saliva in my mouth, heavy feeling in my throat, aspirating, all things I have and have had for a while. So now I know.
I have an appointment with my Neurologist sometime this summer so I will bring this up to him. Since this is a later term LBD issue, it fits with the position my wife and I believe I am at in the progression of this disease.
This is a degenerative, neurological disease that leads to death. I will not get better, only worse. Everyone should know that. I do.
