@nellie Hello, Dysphagia is difficulty swallowing — taking more time and effort to move food or liquid from your mouth to your stomach. Dysphagia can be painful. In some cases, swallowing is impossible. Any condition that weakens or damages the muscles and nerves used for swallowing or leads to a narrowing of the back of the throat or esophagus can cause dysphagia. Dysphagia can't be prevented, you can reduce your risk of occasional difficulty swallowing by eating slowly and chewing your food well.
