Squeezing Of Neck And Eds

this is kind of hard to explain but any input would be appreciated, sometimes when i eat, at the end, i will have trouble swallowing like someone is choking me and not enough room in throat to swallow the food and then later the feeling goes away, i dont have any kind of acid reflux just painful squeezing and wondered if this might have something to do with EDS and weak blood vessels and changes in blood flow when we eat, i am too young to have blockage, i am only 30 and i really really doubt its that, and would any medicine help to open up blood vessels, but i know vasodilators lower bp more right? thanks again for any help

HI Radha,

I am not sure if this is relevant, but my daughter (EDS) has some problems with not being able to swollow sometimes. It tends to be worse when her ANS dysfunction is bad she finds she needs to stretch her neck around. We have been told that this might be due to the cartalige in her esopheguse(sp sorry!) sliping! seems to make sence though as moving her throat around helps.

Hello,

3 of us have EDS and all three have difficulties with swallowing certain foods such as bread, starch foods and leafy greens as lettuce. it always takes extra swallows to get the food down compared to normal people. We take smaller bites. Our girls have also complained about getting their throat out of place at times (says its a very strange sensation). EDS is quite the complex never ending giving disorder. Although you may want to have a Doctor make sure there is nothing else going on just to be sure.
