Re: Food Getting Stuck

Hi, If ther esophagus has no motility, there is no cure, but, it may be that you just need a dialation of the esophagus. You need to see a gastroenterologist.

As far as what I east, yes, it mostly happens with meat such as steak or a hamburger, I can eat ground up hamburger, like a taco, and yes, chicken and turkey as well are problems.

I have been like this since 1981, believe me, I get very sick of it. I also on occasion have had to go to the ER because something got stuck and it just would not come out. I also so the run to the bathroom and stick my finger down my throat, that doesn't always work. It is quite embarrasing to say nothing of the pain involved.
