    Unhappy My friend is having swallowing problem

    One of my friend is facing difficulties in swallowing food. It has been 3 days and there has been no sign of improvement. What shall I do?

    Re: My friend is having swallowing problem

    Is there pain as well? And were there minor issues with swallowing before this?

    Absolutely best thing is to see a doctor at this point while there are symptoms.

    It could be inflamed thyroid. Or some sort of sudden onset swelling. Did she/he eat anything that scratched their throat? Either way, the person should be going to Urgent care to be looked at.
