Hello and welcome to HealingWell.
Several conditions can cause difficulty swallowing, and this symptom should always be evaluated by a physician. In many cases, though, difficulty swallowing is linked to a condition known as (GERD), which causes the contents of the stomach to inappropriately leak into the esophagus.
Again, if you have any difficulty swallowing, it is important that you see your physician.
