swollowing

I know that some people with MS have problems with swallowing, I sometimes choke when I eat or drink. It’s not all the time, possibly once a day. Does this sound like an ms symptom? I’m not diagnosed just having lots of ms type symptoms like the"hug", some numbness and fatigue.

It depends how and why you are choking. A speech therapist might be able to work out the cause. (They do a lot more than deal with speech issues.) Why not ask your GP for a referral? Do mention it to the neuro too, just in case.
