Loud swallowing?

it's been almost 5 years since I've noticed my swallowing is a bit louder than others, it sounds normal to me but It gets quite the reaction out of others who tend to get very annoyed.This is something I can't help but do and it seems even worse when I eat and drink help????

Reading you subject, I figured you were having problems inside you head, bu no, you say your swallowing is heard by others... how far away?  

I see no way of producing a loud swallow other than by making audible sounds with you wind/pipe/lungs.  Is it possible you  passing air through your nose when you swallow?  Do you suffer from nasal congestion?  

I can't think of anything more, I can't recall ever hearing another person swallow, at least not on a regular basis.

I have the same problem and I have no idea how to control it. I'm tired of the dirty looks and people complaining I'm rude or annoying. I would love help. I will post back here if I find anything.

I have the same problem and my brother complains to me all the time that I swallow loudly.  Is it possible that those people have a condition?  There is a condition called misophonia (literally described as a "hatred of sound") where people can't stand the sound of different noises such as burping, chewing, swallowing, etc.  If only a few different people have told you that you bother them, is it possible that they have this condition?  If you're being told by a lot of people, I wouldn't know.  I have this problem myself and I can't find anything about it.
