What was the cause of your swallowing problems?

I have thick sinus drainage due to allergies. They get stuck in my throat and I am constantly trying to cough and clear it. The voice therapist is suggesting a test for swallowing difficulties. I have a history of difficulty swallowing pills.

As a previous polio sufferer I have been wheel-chair bound for 60 yrs. Sometimes, esp. at bedtime, when I swallow, saliva goes down the wrong way and I suffer a coughing fit which lasts for hours.
