Hello @deardevil3, big welcome to Shift. I, too, hate MS with a vengeance! But getting on its life regardless. If you look at the map function above you will see that there are others in your locale. All the best 🙂

I regularly have trouble swallowing both food and drink.
The trick is to have food in smaller bite size pieces and make sure you chew it thorougly before attempting to swallow. Ensure that you tuck your chin into your neck when swallowing, goes down easier that way.

Same thing with drink too, small sips, use a straw and tuck in your chin.

Its not easy to deal with indeed
And not just that and it needs immune suppressor for the rest of our lives so in the end of our days we feel like 50% handicapped 50% aids like patients
Not complaining but i feel it crueler when i think about it this way
No where out these treatments and no where out MS
I’ll be like those who had been looking for other option than these treatments and died disabled with no answer probably lol
