Symptoms of Dysphagia can include:

  • A feeling of choking or coughing when eating or drinking
  • Regurgitating food (bringing up food)
  • A feeling something is caught in your throat

Difficulty swallowing is usually caused by another condition such as stroke, dementia, problems with your oesophagus or gastro-oesophageal reflux. Your GP will perform a full examination and may order further tests. They may refer you to a specialist consultant.
