I have had bariatic tests done and nothing is showing up. I know with fibro all our muscles are affected. This is very frightening as I can't get my breath while these episodes are happening. Please let me know if you too have experienced this and what your treatment was.
I ;have had some swallowing problems as well. Don't know if it's related to fibro. I don't feel as if I'm being choked and can breathe when it happens, but the food stays in my throat. Depending on your age, I've been told that this sometimes happens to people over 45-50. I have found that if I have a cup of tea or even hot water it helps the food go down. Sometimes I do have to bring it up though. I find that if I lift my chin up and gently massage my throat it sometimes helps the food go down.
I have also had this problem. I know exactly what you mean about feeling strangled. When something seems to "go down the wrong pipe" I choke, then I can't get air back into my lungs. It is very frightening!!! I also have fibromyalgia but sorry to say, don't know if it is related. Just wanted to let you know, you are not alone and Hang In There! Hoping someone figures out a cure for fibro soon and we can all be done suffering!!! :)
Yes I have severe acid reflux and problems swallowing .The only thing that helps is an enescope where they stretch your asophagus by using a scope and check for any desease.This is dine by a gastrointerologist. It feels like your throat shuts down food wont go down or up .It's very scary and causes chest pain.Hope this helps..
