Dysphagia, in layman's language, is a medical condition when a person has difficulty swallowing food or liquid. Dysphagia can be due to problems in the throat (Oropharyngeal Dysphagia).

The person may experience a choking sensation, coughing, and feel that something got stuck in the throat, but treatments can help to restore normal swallowing.

Hoarseness, known as Dysphonia, is an inflammation of the larynx that changes the voice, causing it to become breathy, rough, scratchy, or strained. Changes in volume and pitch may also occur. Although hoarseness is usually not a medical emergency, it could be associated with significant underlying health conditions. When a person's voice becomes hoarse, it may exhibit a raspy, weak, or airy quality, hindering the ability to produce clear vocal tones.

Obstructive sleep apnea is concerned with the throat muscles. When throat muscles relax and sag during sleep, they obstruct the air passage and lead to breathing challenges.
