Hello Goddess! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The process of swallowing is regulated by the brain and various nerves, muscles, and valves in the esophagus. Impaired swallowing (dysphagia) can occur due to disruption of regulation in the brain, disruption of swallowing muscle function, disruption of muscles that regulate the opening of the valve (achalasia), and narrowing of the esophagus (both due to irritation from stomach acid or tumors). In general, swallowing disorders are not normal. You should immediately see an internist, especially the gastroenterohepalogy subspecialist. You will be examined directly to see the possible causes of this difficulty swallowing. If the abnormality is thought to lie deep enough, your doctor may require endoscopic examination on you. The doctor will discuss with you about this. If when you eat, you can not swallow in more than 15 minutes, immediately come to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Meanwhile, when at home, try to eat in an upright position and head towards the front. Stay in this position for 15-20 minutes after eating. Avoid distractions or other chores when eating because difficulty in swallowing can cause you to choke more easily. Eat slowly in small amounts per spoonful and don't talk when there is food in your mouth. You may also need to drink every time you bite or bite. Choose foods that are softer and easier to swallow. Drink more than usual. Avoid lemon consumption because it can reduce the production of saliva which can facilitate the process of swallowing.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
