I emphathize with your husband and you. I have been diagnosed w/myositis (DM) for 10 years now & have been in & out of remission. The initial symtoms included extreme swallowing issues like your husband as well which caused me to lose a lot of weight because I couldn't eat. At that time I was on 80 mg of prednisone as well as imuran. I found that as my condition improved, I was able to get control of my motor skills and swallowing improved as well. I now am still inflamed at 8000 cpk & improving & am on 30 mg of prednisone & 300 mg of imuran per day. I am still having tbl swallowing only on the right side of my throat & found that some foods (breads,crackers,potatoes w/skins,spicy foods) annoy my throat more so I try to eat softer foods/blander foods. Maybe this may help your husband as well.
