      I have experienced the same thing while on FOLFOX. For me, it seems to occur in the evening at dinner. After a few bites it seems to go away. It can be painful. I have also had some swallowing problems but nothing major yet. I was told by my doc that this was a fairly common side effect. Good luck.

      Blend your foods and drink with a straw.....Smoothies with Whey Protein Powder and ground up nuts and seeds.
      Soups AND Veggie Juices.
      Sorry about your problem....sounds lousy.

      I found it went along with the cold intolerance Really bad over the "bad" weekend but then got better until the next treatment. Hot soup is a good choice for those days
