Dysphagia is the medical term for swallowing troubles. Some people with dysphagia have troubles ingesting particular foods or liquids, while others can not swallow whatsoever. Other signs of dysphagia include: coughing or choking when eating or drinking; bringing food back up, in some cases via the nose; an experience that food is stuck in your throat or breast; persistent salivating of saliva. Dysphagia can additionally occur in children as the result of a developing or learning impairment. Dysphagia can be triggered by problems with the: mouth or throat, known as oropharyngeal or "high" dysphagia; oesophagus, known as oesophageal or "low" dysphagia. The type of dysphagia you have can usually be detected after checking your swallowing capability and analyzing your oesophagus. Over time, dysphagia can also cause symptoms such as weight loss and duplicated breast infections. You need to see your general practitioner if you, or someone you care for, have problem swallowing or any other signs of dysphagia so you can get therapy to aid with your symptoms. Treatment usually depends on the cause and type of dysphagia. Many cases of dysphagia can be boosted with cautious management, but a cure isn't constantly possible. The tongue and jaw move strong food around in the mouth so it can be eaten. Eating makes strong food the right dimension and appearance to ingest by mixing the food with saliva. The second stage begins when the tongue pushes the food or liquid to the rear of the mouth. The third stage starts when food or liquid goes into the esophagus, the tube that carries food and liquid to the stomach. When there is an issue with the neural control or the frameworks involved in any part of the swallowing process, dysphagia happens.
