    Worried about wife's difficulties swallowing


    feel devastated. My wife has been complaining about difficulty swallowing.

    This seemed to have gotten worse two days ago which caused me to have a panic attack
    and nervous breakdown.

    We'll have to go to a hospital to have the standard examinations.

    Please, keep your fingers crossed & prayers would be appreciated!

    You posted in our Esophageal cancer forum. Are you making assumptions this is the cause of her difficulty swallowing? Or has she been diagnosed? If you are making assumptions it must be cancer, that is extreme.

    If she is having difficulty, of course see a physician and have a medically qualified physician determine the cause. Having a panic attack and nervous breakdown is not helping your wife.
