How are you?
There can be many causes of choking, the most common being not chewing the food properly and eating big pieces of food quickly.
Other causes can be inhaled foreign body, epiglottitis, larngo-tracheitis, pneumothorax, collapsed lungs, pulmonary embolism, tracheo-oesophageal fistula, thyroid tumor and cyst.
Please get the child examined by a pediatrician as soon as possible. Take care!
My child got multiple motor problems in past few years, so I started to read a lot about, and stumble on dysphagia, so I wonder if those easily choking on liquids is another symptom. I'll check it with Dr.
Hi . I choke on fluids to.A few years ago ,I had growths on my vocal cords which were removed but I still had the problem. One thing I have noticed is , it gets worse if I am anxious. Have no problem with food.Had it checked out in the last month with a specialist, and nothing wrong. I would get a dr to have a look but teenage years are hard ones! Good luck,Cath278
