Parkinson Sucks

Question

Last week I fell over an outside water outlet, and hit my head on the concrete sidewalk. The side walk is fine. But, apparently the water outlet is not :angry: . Just took a sip of soda earlier, and thought I was going to choke to death. I don't know what I would do without my wife. On May 17th, I will undergo a Esophago Gastro Duodenoscopy procedure, to see why I'm choking. I had the test done in 2010, and the indication was Dysphagis, with a tortous Esophagus. I actually had issues with my Esophagus after I got back from Vietnam, along with passing out (fainting sounds too sissy :blush: ). But, there was really no exams, exrays, etc done. Same old story, if there were no blood coming out of your ears and eyes, you were good to go.

Sorry for you Papa! If you were dizzy or incoherent when this happened go see your PCP and see if they can run some tests and check you out.

I know being a heart patient not to ignore any changes it my behavior during breathing chocking or any of that stuff.

Take care of yourself brother!
