Trouble Breathing While Eating

Normally, people don't need to think about how they breathe while they eat. The process is controlled subconsciously, and they can do both without any trouble. But people with dysphagia may have trouble breathing while eating. It's a distinctive symptom that anyone who suspects they may suffer from dysphagia should track carefully.

Trouble breathing and eating at the same time can lead to more serious issues, such as food entering the lungs. People experiencing this should see a physician for treatment soon.
