Achalasia

A rare disease in the esophagus caused by increased spasticity or narrowing of the lower esophageal sphincter. Symptoms include difficulty swallowing, choking, coughing and the sensation of food getting caught in the throat. Regurgitation of undigested foods is a sign of developing achalasia. Some patients might also experience coughing in a reclined position, chest pain, and weight loss. Multiple therapies exist for the treatment of Achalasia such as esophageal dilation. Occasionally a biopsy is required, but only in rare instances. Patients need to swallow slowly, chew thoroughly, drink a large amount of water with each meal.
