My grandson is having problems swallowing liquids. No problems at all swallowing solids. He holds his head back and lets the liquids slowly go down his throat as he sound like he is gurgleing and its almost like he is holding his breath or cannot breathe while he is trying to drink., He strangles if he drinks like a normal swallow. I have never seen anything like it. He is always thirsty. He really doesn't urinate much. My daughter has had her first appoint ment at childrens hospital, they seem to think its gerds but he only does it on anything liquidy. Apples sauce, yogurt, milk. I am very concerned, although he seems like a very healthy and happy child. He constantly wants to eat. Childrens hospital will be running test on the 21st, so we will find out more. You are the only other person that I have found that has the similar problem. ThanksView Thread
