hi there,

i am online and will be happy to answer your questions.

thank you for your patience.

I am sorry to hear your problem.

you mean you swallow when you are not eating something? do you feel tempted to do this and feel anxious if you stop yourself doing this?

do you have any other repetitive movements ( bodily or vocal ) that you do ?

any medical illness?

this is an info request . please reply so i can help you . thank you
