Swallowing Difficulties

Difficulty swallowing means it takes more time and effort to move food or liquid from your mouth to your stomach, and in some instances may be associated with pain. A few of the more common symptoms from having difficulty swallowing are:
  • Sensation of food getting stuck in your throat
  • Pain while swallowing
  • Hoarseness
  • Coughing or gagging when swallowing

Having trouble swallowing is an alarming symptom, and Dr. James Hakert recommends that you see a doctor if you are having difficulties swallowing.
