What causes dysphagia?

Marisa Byliefeldt  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi Chris

Firstly, I really love your slot on 702 with Redi!

I suffer from dysphagia - do you know what causes this? And if there are any cures besides drugs?

Regards
Marisa

What do you think?

Can be different causes for different types of dysphagia ...

oropharyngeal   ( choking on food )   or oesophageal  ( food stuck in gullet ).
