Avatar n tn My dog seems to have a lot of difficulty swallowing when he eats or drinks and he ends up hacking and coughing most of it up on the floor.

Avatar n tn Painful swallowing is called odynophagia. Difficulty in swallowing is dysphagia. Reflux (GERD) is a common cause. Lump in the throat and extra production of phlegm are other common symptoms of GERD. Your ENT should be well equipped to identify it. Is the pain excruciating, like a charley horse? If so, it sounds like cricopharyngeal spasms. If not, count your blessings.
Avatar f tn persistent sore throat,pain when swallowing,difficulty swallowing or frequent choking on food,bad breath,lumps in the neck,persistent ear pain (called referred pain; the source of the pain is not the ear) and change in voice quality. ref: Keeping in mind your history of acid reflux in all probability this has to do with GERD. Your symptoms also occur only with certain food substances which also favors a diagnosis of GERD.
287996 tn?1312023682 t cause my throat to hurt. I would have chest pain but not throat pain or difficulty swallowing. I might be concerned that you have some acid erosion from acid reflux damaging your esophagus. This is an issue that could trigger pvcs due to the vagus nerve so I would go see your doctor or a gastroenterologist to get your throat checked out.

Avatar n tn I have been experiencing difficulty swallowing but it has progressed to near severe. Even swallowing water can be very difficult. I believe that anxiety plays a role regarding my difficulty swallowing but it is not the sole reason. However, anxiety may be the reason it has gotten progressively worse. I had an echo and Hida scan(I think its called) that yielded no results.
Avatar f tn For the past 24 hours I've been having difficulty with swallowing. I've had this issue before, but it usually comes on in the evening or when I'm going to sleep. But this time it's been an entire day and not getting better. The symptoms of this are- Food and drink are only mildly hard to get down. The real difficulty is the swallowing when not eating/drinking. I guess it's a reflex? Something I don't really notice usually, like blinking.
1545021 tn?1322477485 I see that "difficulty swallowing" could be a symptom of this. I would like to know what exactly this feels like? Is it like a sore throat? I wonder because I get these feelings in my throat like someone is strangling me. It's not painful, just feels tight. And swallowing always felt weird. I wouldn't call it "difficult," just weird. Anyone who has this symptom, can you describe what it feels like?
1100851 tn?1345729474 With sinus infections you should have facial pain or pressure. It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics.

Avatar n tn For the past few years I have had difficulty initiating the swallowing process. Sometimes I find that it is harder than others, but I can't figure out what causes this. It feels like somewhere between my nose and mouth is swollen, making the opening to swallow smaller and feels kind of like swallowing while holding your nose. Once I swallow, I'm fine it's just that it takes a lot of effort to swallow.

Avatar f tn Now last night was fine, but I sat down for dinner, and could hardly swallow my food. The pain kept me up most of the night. Now pain is getting severe with the ear pain and swallowing.

He seems to think nothing really but he can't treat me as a patient.
