Hello... I am new to the message boards and have found them to be so informational and a great blessing!! Anyways.. I was diagnosed to FMS about 10 years ago. My question is this since I was pregnant with my first child at the age of 21 I have had a very hard time swallowing and I know that its not been listed as a side affect of Fibro. But personally I do believe this is because its orignation was at a stressful time. ( About to be a new mom) and also... I know that it gets so much worse when I am feeling very stressed. Sometimes I can hardly swallow my saliva.. much less food in fact I have been known to not even eat when I am feeling so stressed cause of the fear of choking. Has anyone else experianced this as a possible side affect or known of anyone to? Thanks for any and all responses I may recieve be Blessed in abundance!
