This is not my first time gulping down the barium. I don’t recall it being particularly problematic last time, but I have my moments when I’m very “go with the flow.”
I would like a firm diagnosis and a course of action. Some clue as to what exactly is going on in my throat. They’ve ruled out a lot of really bad stuff. They’ve drawn my attention to my severe allergies, sinus congestion, and post-nasal drip. However, they still have not been able to tell me why I am prone to choke on saliva, mucus, liquids, and, now, foods that stray to the back of my throat without proper guidance.
It is time to pack up and roll out. Praying that the hunger pains are manageable and the hunger headache does not set in fully and strongly.
