Trouble swallowing food, water or saliva.

Problems swallowing (or dysphagia) can result in aspiration (which is food or saliva going down the wrong pipe), and slow swallowing, which can lead to poor nutrition. Other symptoms of dysphagia include: coughing or choking when eating or drinking, bringing food back up, or sometimes through the nose.
