Depends what you mean by the question. Everybody has a difficult time swallowing food once in awhile (tough to chew, didnt chew enough...ect). <br />
If it is an ongoing problem it could be a sign that something more serious is wrong (throat infection, cancer, MS, stroke, parkinsons...ect)
It only hurts when I have to swallow my pride, honey - BIG TIME!
One time I ate a piece of pizza with aluminum foil stuck to the bottom of it and that was very hard to swallow, it even hurt a little going down.
Only when I cut off more than I should!
Yes I was just so upset that I could not swallow, I nearly died from being underweight and getting tonsillitis.
If I don't like it, or I chew it too long and it gets really soft and gross.
