General Surgeon 's  Response
swallowing food or drinking as such can not give rise to pain as described
is he lefty
is there any injury to left arm
in that case while using the arm for eating or swallowing may cause pain
notice the child without his knowledge while he eats and see whether having problems
if complain persists doctors opinion should again be takenw
wishing early recovery
