Please share how neuropathy may impact swallowing.
With me, I already have one paralyzed cord so whatever is going on with me all of a sudden I can’t talk right it makes it hard to swallow and talk. They did a mobility test on me and said my esophagus is not working right
@birdierobin – that sounds difficult that you can't talk right and swallowing is hard. Do you have neuropathy that is linked to this somehow, or just the paralyzed vocal cord?
@jimhd @arlinebringhurst @johnbishop @jaygats @2011panc @jcbonne1 @jenniferhunter may have some thoughts on the impact of neuropathy on swallowing or any personal experiences they have had with this symptom.
How has neuropathy impacted your swallowing, @rwinney?

I'm sorry to hear that @birdierobin. It must be awful. What is the next planned step towards relief or diagnosis?
Any chance the conversations had yesterday under the thread "Aching Legs and Neuropathy" can be moved under this thread?
Mayo has a esophagus specialist at Rochester MN clinic.. he really helped me..
Hey Rachel I have an appointment March 24 at the male clinic so until then I’m on my own I’m just real careful chewing and eating and drinking liquids
Who is it Ken?
Hi, @rwinney – unfortunately, we can only move a whole thread at this time to move it over and combine it with another thread. We don't have the capability of moving just a few posts in a thread. Please let me know if I've understood what you are asking correctly.
M. Halland… is an esophagus specialist… he's from Norway… He spent a lot of time with me to make sure I understood what was going on..
Many good wishes sent your way. Best of luck with your appointment.🍀
Ok. Yes you've understood. I suppose I can post a message under the "swallowing" thread to refer to the "Aching leg" thread for additional discussion. Haha…no biggie. I'm probably over thinking it!
Thanks Ken I’m sure they will address that issue too. Helps to have a referral. I’m coming from VA & staying awhile
