Nervous swallowing ruining my life.

It may sound trivial but for a number of years I have experienced a problem of not being able to stop swallowing in intimate situations. The person I am with may not notice at first but when they do it exasibates the compulsion to have to do it. I literally can' t stop doing it and end up feeling very foolish. This makes me and whoever I' m with feel akward and is becoming a real obstacle in progressing in a romantic relationship.
