Lump in my throat after eating

Hi everyone, I am going through a relapse, it has been confirmed and now I feel like my food is getting stuck in my throat. Will I need steroids for this or should it go on its own. Thanks for any reply. X

I suggest fizzy drinks as you eat, after a mouthful have a drink of fizzy water/pop. It helps push the food down. I suffer the same thing. If it persists, you need to go to MS nurse & be referred to a speech therapist, & dietitian. MS can weaken the muscles needed to swallow. It may pass after the relapse. xx
