When to use dysphagia and dysphasia. Simply put:
Dysphagia means difficulty swallowing.
Dysphasia means difficulty speaking.
Some tell me that they remember dysphasia by the “s” in phasia having to do with speech and the “g” in phagia having to do with gastrointestinal or swallowing. Does anyone have another way that they remember the difference between the 2 words?
