Is there pain under the chin when swallowing? If so, I believe that it is called dysphagia and it is a condition that often occurs in the upper area of the face.
It is a very common facial problem. For instance, if you have a great deal of self-consciousness about your nose, then you are probably experiencing dysphagia. It can really cause you to feel very uncomfortable when you have a meal or something else.
Dysphagia may occur due to other factors as well. Therefore, it is wise to know the causes of dysphagia and find out why it happens. You may have been eating something that is constipating and in turn causing a pain under the chin when swallowing.
You will be able to avoid dysphagia by avoiding constipation or enuresis. Enuresis is eating your meals too quickly and straining as a result. Constipation is having so much fecal matter that is stored in the stomach that is needed for digestion.
If you are dealing with dysphagia, you may want to consider taking muscle relaxants, because they will help to reduce the pain. If the dysphagia is from over-eating, then you should first think about not eating so many unhealthy foods.
Descriptive dysphagia may cause your dysphagia to get worse and cause you to suffer from pain when swallowing. In fact, it may even require medical treatment such as a nasogastric tube.
These tubes are connected to a little tube that goes down into your stomach and in some cases goes right up to your esophagus. It allows food to go in and out of your stomach without a lot of effort. It is also considered an extension of the digestive system.
There are other types of tubes that go into your esophagus and allow food to be passed to your stomach. These will be necessary for people who have dysphagia from their esophagus but have normal esophagus function.
A esophagus that has deviated from its usual route, may be causing you dysphagia. This could be because the nerves are on the wrong side of the esophagus. The nerves do go to the same part of the throat in the upper region.
Dysphagia can happen at any age, but it is usually noticed during childhood. Many people go through this stage without thinking too much about it, but if the dysphagia persists into adulthood, it can become chronic dysphagia.
The best thing to do for dysphagia is to seek medical attention. Be sure to be truthful with the doctor in regards to how the dysphagia has progressed, as well as the causes of the dysphagia.
