Dysphagia (Difficulty Swallowing): Is it Something More?

Dysphagia (Difficulty Swallowing): Is it Something More?

by Shearly (SU)
It can be easy to become over-excited about a potentially delicious meal. Sometimes the lasagna looks too delicious to have a reasonably sized bite, in which case you might take a bite that takes you forever to chew and swallow. However, those should be the only circumstances where difficulty with swallowing is normal. Certainly, it is difficult to swallow that first bite of turkey on Thanksgiving, but not on a regular basis or for an unusual amount of times. More than twice can be a sign that your difficulty swallowing could be Dysphagia, or something more.
