    What helped me tremendously is whilst eating, drinking hot boiling water mixed with sparkling water so that the temperature is warm. This helped to relax my esophagus and actually allowed me to eat. Also buy meal replacement powder and make smoothies with milk or water. If that's not going down easily, you can also drink this warm water to relax the esophagus.

    These are the only things that worked for me until I had a POEM operation, which fixed my swallowing issues. Hope that helps.
