I recently developed difficulty swallow solids and liquids. I am choking often. It's real scary. Has anyone experienced this problem? Could it be related to Crohns?

Sorry to hear that you are struggling. I personally have not had this but I do know that Crohn's can happen anywhere in the digestive tract so it is possible to affect your swallowing but it might be something different so I would check with either your GP or GI to be sure. Let us know how you get on. Vern - IBD Team Member

Hi . First, let me echo Vern on the importance of bringing these new symptoms to the attention of your doctor. I know thrush can cause problems with swallowing and cause a choking feeling. Our patient leader Kelly J wrote about this here: https://inflammatoryboweldisease.net/living/thrush. Of course, only a doctor can provide the proper diagnostics and there are certainly other potential causes. Hoping you get some answers and relief soon. Best, Richard (Team Member)
