Twisted throat. Swallowing test suggested. Choking on food frequently. Ataxia?

ent said my mothers throat was a bit twisted, never heard of this she is gonna be going for a swallowing test, but she also suffers from a neuro disease, either spinalcerbrella or fredricks they are not sure, but very similar to either or she started choking on her food an drinks this past year, her mother also had same thing, it is getting very frustrating they cant pin point her condition, but this whole throat thing im really not sure about it just seems when they cant explain whats happening to her , they always blame it on her ataxia ...Do you think it all could be related to her disease

thanks for your query.

It could be central or neural cause because choking of feeds in such case is mostly neurogenic.

Consult to neurophysician, It will take time to recover.

Many thanks. take care.
