Odynophagia and Dysphagia

OdynophagiaàPainful swallowingàwhen you have pain you say Ohhh!
It is kind of a weird, because the term for painful menstruation is dys-menorrhea. Logically the term for painful swallowing should be dys-phagia, but in this case there is a different one, odyno-phagia. Don’t get confused.
