Dysphagia (Difficulty Swallowing): Is it Something More?

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.

However, if this occurs more and more often, or if swallowing becomes painful you may have a more severe type of dysphagia.
