Violation of peristalsis of the esophagus

Xenia asks:

Hello! I have a question for you. I find it hard to swallow food and water. Sometimes gets stuck in my throat and I start to feel like the air is blocked. Begin again to drink water, but usually it is delayed and then rapidly goes through the esophagus. I was told to contact the therapist, as suggested that the disruption of peristalsis of the esophagus. Will have to visit it. In April did the EGD was diagnosed duodenogastric reflux. I didn’t cure him. I have belching air after a meal and sometimes pain in the sternum. All the time afraid of to choke. Eat all the cereals. Please tell when I gets a drink of water or food if I can choke? Very scary…

The answer of the doctor:

Hello, Xenia!

Complete a complete examination of the esophagus x — ray and the study of the muscles of the esophagus. This will give a clearer picture of organ and help to make a final diagnosis.

But at this stage there is a need to take drugs. You need to pass long course of treatment so that the symptoms no longer bothered. Diagnosed gasping, the spasms of the esophagus will disturb regularly, at any time of the day. In addition, due to the lack of circular muscles at the border of the stomach and duodenum more raw food you can get from the stomach into the esophagus (the bile to weaken the lower esophageal sphincter). In the future this will lead to more pronounced disturbances in the body, including the occurrence of complications. These include:

READ  Diet with high acidity of the stomach
  • ulcers of the stomach and esophagus;
  • narrowing or stricture;
  • precancerous processes.
  • In this case, the symptoms will worsen as complications also apply to other organs nearby (respiratory organs).

    My advice is not to delay the trip to the doctor and start taking drugs!
