What causes difficulty in swallowing?

I have been having increasing difficulty swallowing some foods. It started with breads, chicken, and I had to drink fluids frequently. At times it has felt like food is stuck mid sternum. I have had a few instances where there are increasing pain/discomfort, unable to swallow fluids, with vomiting of liquids/saliva till it moves distally. Any good advice?

Hello,

Get an ent examination done who will go for laryngoscopy to r/o any evident growth. If all is well there, visit a gastroenterologist.you may need a gastroscopy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
