  • Difficulty Swallowing?

    Posted by Dagmar on June 24, 2019 at 6:00 am

    I didn’t experience any swallowing issues until my fourth year of ALS.

    The incident turned what used to be enjoying a calm drink of water that followed my morning stretch routine, into several minutes of gagging, coughing, and gasping for air. Thinking it all was just a fluke of the moment, I brushed the episode off.

    But repeat episodes throughout the week had me worried, and a timely visit to the ALS clinic confirmed that I had a swallowing disorder, known as dysphagia.

    Here are several ways I’ve changed how I eat and drink to adapt to my swallowing challenges. Do you experience difficulty swallowing? What do you do to help make mealtimes less stressful?
