    Ooh, me too: salt, vinegar and one end dipped in garlic sauce, yumm. I used to love a well cooked, proper chip, am salivating just thinking of them... 😏😘

    OMG, I had this 'stridor' thing when I was eating hot chips, it was the most horrible rasping sound ever, it took ages for the food to go down and the noise to go away. Very frightening experience. No hot chips after that

    'Stridor' is caused by a physical blockage or anatomical issue, not by muscle spasms. xx

    Heather R Hi Heather, stridor is the rasping sound produced when trying to breathe/inhale through closed vocal folds. I'm not sure if what I was experiencing is the same as you. Here is a video simulation, I hope it's not too frightening xx

    For excess saliva I heartily recommend glyco Bromide. Liquid blotting paper! πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜xx

    Rosemary, I don’t know the term laryngospasm, but wonder if it’s the same as one of my early symptoms when it felt like my throat was going into spasm upwards and remained locked like that for a few seconds before subsiding. Most uncomfortable and alarming. Is that the same as the term stridor? Xx

    Thanks all. I have to sleep on my right side (because I have a painful bursa in my left hip which screams when I'm on my back), so flat with a neck supporting memory foam pillow. I don't have a hospital bed yet so can't easily adjust my position. I'm thinking it must have been a stray bit of saliva or phlegm. I was ok last night so hope it's not going to be a regular occurrence. I will be getting a hospital bed in a couple of weeks when we have made room but do hate sleeping on my back. Maybe it won't be so bad when I can raise my top half. I don't feel I've got too much saliva unless I start thinking about it, then I have to keep swallowing, but it doesn't last!

    Have it off and on during the day, but never had it at night. It's never lasted that long either, and hope not to experience that. I've learnt to relax and not get upset, but that sounds something else. Hope you find a solution, frightening!
