Greetings,Thank you for your question.I am Dr. Su S.I will try my best to help you.
Please write in detail.
Does he have pain or any other symptom?
Did you discuss it with his doctor?
Thank you for the input.There is unlikely a physical or organic cause.In those cases, there would be difficulty in swallowing all solid foods, not any particular one or type.Over such long time, there will be other symptoms like pain, weight loss etc.Psychological issues can be there.He may not like certain food or does not want to take it.As his doctor has told it can be a phase only.If it occurs quite frequently, you can talk with his doctor again.He can refer to an ENT specialist for examining throat, do scope.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish him healthy life.Regards.
You are always welcome.
