Breathlessness, numbness after eating or drinking. Suffering from blockage?

Sometimes when my husband is eating or drinking he will suffer an eposide where he can t breathe and goes limp for a few seconds. It passes and he can continue eating but remembers to chew his food thoroughly and doesn t have a problem finishing what he was eating. Is he suffering from some sort of blockage? Thank you. Mrs.
