A swollen/dry throat or tongue, trapped food, medical conditions that may cause inflammation in the esophagus, allergic reaction, swollen tonsils and esophageal reflux disease are the various factors which can result in Dysphagia. It can lead to problems like hoarse voice, regurgitation, unexpected weight loss, heartburn, drooling and pain while swallowing.
