Difficulty in swallowing is "all in my head"...

Is it a Myth or a Fact?

Difficulty in swallowing, technically known as dysphagia may occur due to a variety of causes. One cause of dysphagia involves problems of the nerves and muscles of the throat. This prevents a coordinated transfer of food from the throat to the food pipe. The other type is an abnormality of the esophagus not pushing food down to the stomach. The abnormality may be an obstruction to the flow in downward direction or may involve abnormal functioning of the muscles of the esophagus. Stress does not cause dysphagia but may worsen it especially when the functioning of the nerves/muscles are involved.
