Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Sorry to hear about that. Do you find it difficult to swallow both solids and liquids? Has it been progressive or fairly constant since beginning ? Is it intermittent or same all day?

Any pain in your throat ?

Anything that seems to help ? Like changing posture, bending neck etc ?

Any white membrane visible at back of your throat ?

Have you had any tests done for this ?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
