I am constantly, & I mean constantly clearing my throat! It always feels like I have phlegm in my throat, forcing me to swallow a lot as well. At my worst, back in 2002 I had nerve damage to my vocal cords & also had difficulty swallowing, even my pills. It took me forever to eat & I still eat slowly, as I have choked a number of times. I never had this before CIDP, so I know it is related. I talked on the phone to a woman named Donna recently who also has a severe case of CIDP, & she noticed how much I had to clear my throat, said she has to do the same. I think it is residual damage to my nerves in my throat.

I too have a problem of something in my throat and have seen an ENT and a gastroenterologist. The Neurosurgeon does not feel that it is the CIPD but the other two specialists say it does and is a mtility problem. I choke on foods occasionally due to it. I also am losing my hair all of a sudden.

Thank you for the information. My boyfriends son is 20 years old he is not on any medication. And it happens at all different times. And it is not when he is eating. It is like he has something stuck in his throat. He hasnt been to the doctors lately.Due to he doesnt have any medical insurance . His son says he is fine but his father is worried, but his son will not go to the doctors . So if we knew what it was and what could be done I really believe we can get him to the doctors. If anyone has information I would be more so appreciated.

Thank you
