      Do you have trouble breathing while you eat? Does you heart rate quicken because you’re not receiving enough oxygen? Have you ever fainted while eating? Have you considered getting a Tracheotomy help get more oxygen into your lungs? What has your doctor or physical therapist recommended to help with this dilemma?

      Choking is a major problem with my disease (Myotonic type 2). My sister who also had this, died choking on a spoonful of peanut butter. So, I am always trying to slow down my eating and coat everything with enough liquid to lubricate it’s passage. I still choke frequently, sometimes without eating. So far it has never reached the point to where I pass out. At this point, I have not been willing to go for a tracheotomy, but I may have to later.
