Have you had this looked at by anyone yet?
Hot dogs are one of the most common food items that are people choke on.
You could have some nerve damage of the area around the esophagus. This should be assessed by an ENT specialist.
This could also be an infection of the tonsils or other areas of the throat.
either of these conditions could cause you to lose sensitivity of the nerves needed for swallowing and cause your symptoms.
I do not have any tonsils, they were removed as a child
The ENT specialist can also perform a swallow test to check for physiological problems with swallowing
Ok, It could still be an infection of the surrounding areas
Would that continue for a year or more?
Do you have any other health problems?
It could if their is nerve damage
Any other symptoms?
No very healthy although I am usually battling fatigue. I do have four boys though and am very busy
An ENT is the best place to start. If they can't find anything then the next step would be a neurologist
But sometimes the fatigue seems more than just normal tiredness
It's either something involving the throat directly or another underlying neuro condition causing the symptom
It wouldn't hurt to have your doctor run a blood test to check for autoimmune disorders like lupus
i'm sorry you felt this was poor service. Can I clarify anything for you?
I wasn't quite finished discussing this with you. Let me know if you have further questions
