Yet another nonsensical symptom today- for a period of 5 minutes Aaron freaked out because he was eating shrimp and pasta and all of a sudden had this look of terror on his face because his 'throat wouldnt take direction from my brain to swallow'. (he does not have a shellfish allergy) He could not swallow his food. No swelling, its just like his throat wouldn't work. He also sounded a bit drunk (!) and was a little slurry with his words. it passed quickly- he started feeling normal after a minute or so. we took a nap and he feels fine now. really scary episode...anyone else experience anything like this? He's on GTX + Nexavar but has been on break for 2 weeks.
