Difficulty in swallowing, otherwise known as dysphagia, can be distressing to patients. It may be a symptom of another condition, or it can also be a condition by itself. In either case, it is something that must be solved so patients can resume a normal life.
Signs and symptoms of dysphagia include:
- Pain while swallowing
- Hoarse voice
- Regurgitating food
- Acid reflux
- Unexplained weight loss
- Gag reflex while swallowing
Further, symptoms of dysphagia in children include:
- Not attentive to food
- Tension during a feeding period
- Refusal to eat
- Issues with breast feeding
- Inability to swallow which results in vomiting or coughing during meal times
- Unexplained weight fluctuations
In the voice, there are many symptoms of disorders, ranging from mild hoarseness to a total inability to speak. For patients suffering from changes in their voice, the difficulties can be mild or severe. Whatever the case may be, Dr. Aminpour is a board-certified ENT who is well versed in issues of the voice and throat, giving him an ability to give an accurate diagnosis and rapid treatment. His patients regularly report a complete change in their symptoms following treatment, and that same relief may be available to you. Please call us today to schedule an appointment.
