      the rest of that question is supposed to say, the cramps in my throat are getting worse, feels like I am getting choked. Don't know what happened to that post in cyberspace.

      Sounds like they need to go in and stretch your throat. They told me after a year or two I may need that done because sometimes it decides it want's to close up some. Heard it doesn't hurt wish you luck on fixing the problem.

      thank you for that Susie, never heard that before from my doc's. But, they don't always tell you what you might have to have done later do they? It is getting worse, and that sounds like what is happening. I will ask that at my next doc apt.
