It has now been 9-10 days with a swallowing problem. I currently feel like there is a small bump or something down my throat that is making me gag something awful. With ALS, are there sensations of things in you throat that won't go down, or periods of gagging during the very early stages (gagging occurs while I'm not eating)? I currently haven't experienced choking while eating, or slurred speech, but I am constantly having to try to swallow, it hasn't seemed to come naturally over the last 10 days.

From what I've read, ALS doesn't involve abnormal feelings in the throat, like a lump, or like a small piece of food that won't go down. But I don't know, and that's why I'm on here looking for advise from someone who does. Please respond.
