Response from Mr. Molaghan

Hello If you are hungry and having trouble swallowing your food, there could be some sort of blockage in you is esophagus (swallowing tube to the stomach). Talk to your doctor about this soon. You need to be evaluated and may need a procedure to look down the throat. Also, some infections can cause difficulty swallowing (i.e. thrush) Please contact your medical provider. They should be able to help. Good luck.
