I Have Problems Swallowing At Times And Seems To Be Getting Worse. And It’s Embarrassing To Me

To AJMac: Re the swallowing: Have you considered a speech therapist? They provide therapy for swallowing problems. My sister's therapist has worked with her in this area.

People who don’t have PD don’t know what the symptoms are. Would be good to inform them so they wouldn’t make fun!!

To AJ Mac
Small bites of food with plenty of sips of water seem to work ok. Mix pills with apple sauce and don’t eat so fast. Savor the texture of food.

I also have the same problem. And I have to eat with a spoon. Can't eat with a fork. My hand shakes and my food rolls off. So I just use a spoon.
