In brief: Dysphagia

Feeling like you can't swallow needs an explanation - sometimes this is anxiety, or a chewing / haste problem but sometimes it is due to a muscle or tongue problem, an anatomic abnormality of the esophagus or even problem with the normal wave that propels food down the esophagus.
