Although there is no curative treatment available until now, but there are number of options to help you in controlling the dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing).
The first step here is to discuss this with treating physician for a detailed evaluation of the swallowing issue you have.
Videofluoroscopic testing to assess the problems in various stages of swallowing is helpful to decide a specific course of action best suited to a particular patient.
