Potatoes, bread, gets stuck in throat while eating. Loose voice suddenly while talking. How to rectify?

I find that such things eg potatoes, bread etc feels it s stuck in my throat so I choke. I either have to leave or liquidise. Also I v noticed now that I can talk quite normally to start with then all of a sudden my voice starts to go so I have to stop talking as I cant be heard or understood. The no talking can last from a few mins if stop talking at once but if need to finish what I was saying the loss/semi loss can last a day

HI I have gone through your mail and as you said that you feel difficulty in swallowing solid lie bread or potatoes as they stuck in your throat, you also feel weakness of voice and fatiquability of voice. In this connection I would like to say you that your problem is more likely neurological rather than E.N.T. Any way you should contact an E.N.T.specialist to rule out any local cause in pharynx , if throat is found than you should approach to neurologist to rule out myasthenia gravis, motor neuron disease etc. Thanks.
