In brief: Swallowing issues

Some people with parkinson's develop swallowing problems (dysphagia), usually worse with liquids than solids.
Can be tested with video esophagram, treated with swallowing rehab, diet changes, thickeners, change in consistency, etc.. Might improve with better control of the parkinson's disease.
