Seek an evaluation : There are many causes for a person to have issues swallowing and without more information it's difficult to better guide you. This is something that you don't want to ignore because it could really become a serious problem. So review this with your doctor sooner rather than later. You could consider a formal consultation on HealthTap, but this still may very well lead you back to your doctor.
