    ms symptom?
    An_243099 posted:
    Diagnosed with MS about 2 years ago. For the last couple of weeks I have a sensation that something stuck in my throat. Excluded everything that may cause GER/LPR, take Zantac. Could it be relapse? Is anyone experienced the same symptom?
    hackwriter responded:
    Many of us do experience problems swallowing and choking on food and drink. I've had these problems myself, it tends to come and go. I've gagged on my medications quite often and even vomited trying to take my morning meds. According to my neuro, these problems can be caused by MS lesions.

    That something caught in the throat feeling could well be part of MS symptomology, though it could be caused by other conditions as well.

    Definitely mention this problem to your neurologist

    I just signed up for this and first let me say WOW to the info on here it is like other people reflecting off each other. I have had this. I do take a LOT of meds for my MS with seizures, so first off one of them is Previcid for the acid reflux or GERD. I also take a muscle relaxer on a prn( as needed) basis) for muscle spasms or as some call it the spasticity.( sorry I tend to throw in my nursing skills still.) I have been told the muscle relaxer can cause it but I also have noticed it at times when I have not been on it I have even choked myself up on my own saliva. I am going to my MS specialist at the end of this month and it is on my list so don't know if I helped any but plan on getting an answer soon.
