Dysphagia

Dysphagia

Dysphagia is a term that means “difficulty swallowing,” which can occur when attempting to swallow foods, liquids, or even saliva. Occasional dysphagia can occur when eating too quickly or too much, but chronic dysphagia can point to more serious conditions.

Difficulty swallowing can occur for many reasons. Dysphagia could be caused by esophageal conditions, such as esophagitis or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), aging, or neurological disorders.
