I am sorry you have esophageal dysmotility

you should ask for a barium swallow study which can help look for this problem

you could have nerve damage to your esophagus

medications like neurontin could help

is medical marijuana legal in your state? it could help your esophageal dysmotility

or CBD oil could help as well.
