Having trouble swellowing what are the causes
Thanks for contacting HCM. Difficulty swallowing could be caused from infection in the throat area. Damage to the esophagus from acid reflux or a motility problem with the esophagus and throat not moving correctly to allow for proper swallowing. I recommend that you seek medical attention to determine the cause of your swallowing difficulties
 
pain in upper stomach area or lower esophagus. what causes this
Hello! I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). It seems to be acid peptic disease or reflux disease. for this take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole and a prokinetic agent like domperidone. Avoid fatty meal and don't lie soon after taking meals, keep at least a gap of at least 2 hours. take small and frequent meals instead of full meal at a time.I hope I have answered your query and this will help.
