Re: FEESST test and an Esophageal Manometry

I'm not directly familiar with the FEESST. It looks to me that it focuses on the swallowing concerns with the throat. It is the first swallowing test to assess both motor function and sensory reaction during a swallow.

An esophageal manometry measures the muscle pressure in the esophagus.
