Re: Swallowing Difficulties
I have very bad difficulties swallowing; I have done for many years.
Whilst I havenít been dx'd with ms (yet), I have had optic neuritis and have a bunch of unwanted lesions in the brain and ms symptoms pointing to the wrong (right) direction.
My symptoms include, food sticking in the chest, low appetite, feeling of fullness, bloating & constant burping (belching). Ive had a couple of recent upper endoscopys and dx'd with swollen esophagus, like yourself. Following that, ive seen a speech therapist (all okay), had a glucose test (negative) and a lactose test (positive). Ive also got a gastric test soon to help determine the cause of the swallowing difficulties. its all taking a long time, but im really not sure and neither are the doctors. i have a feeling in the back of the mind that it could be a food allergy which has triggered the swollowing problem, and maybe triggered the host of other symptoms (ms).
I hope this is something a gastroenterologist can help with; I would be absolutely gutted if my swallowing difficulties were due to a neurological problem.
