I just saw your other thread. You need to stay on this thread.

You mentioned that you have difficulty in swallowing solids.

Your upper GI endoscopy does not show anything significant except that there is lack of movements in the lower esophagus. This can be due to Achalasia cardia.

Following investigations are usually done for the further assessment;

1) Videofluoroscopic swallowing study (VFSS); it uses the different consistency of the barium and allowing for evaluation of the effect of different maneuvers in preventing aspiration
2) Fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES).
3) Ultrasonography is used to evaluate soft-tissue dynamics.
4) Scintigraphic examination; The advantage of this test is that it can be used in the quantification of aspiration, the identification of the silent aspiration of saliva.

A biopsy of the lower esophagus also may be needed to see if the nerves are absent which are responsible for the lack of peristalsis in Achalasia cardia.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
