Sorry to hear that the ALS is affecting your swallowing. This means that food or liquids can sometimes slip into the wrong passage, in this case the wind pipe. You need to consult your neurologist to see if it's safe to swallow. In some cases an alternative feeding method such as a nasogastric or peg feeding tube could be used.
