LPR: No, this condition does not normally cause you to aspirate, unless there was so much inflammation and pain that you really can't swallow in a coordinated fashion. Hearing a little wheeze after eating does not necessarily mean you are aspirating. It could be intrinsic problems with your lungs- mild asthma. Go see your primary MD and possibly an ENT if not already done.
