Hi i was diagnosed with achalasia back in 1995 and had two balloon dilations within a 1 year period. I had terribl trouble getting diagnosed and then after the two dilations was just left to get on with it.
Finally in 2011 i was sent to the royal london hospital for a monometry test and was diagnosed with dysphagia caused by type 1 achalasia. I had surgery in 2012 which i am still doing well as long as i stick to a strict list of food and drink.
Now here is the but, just over a year ago i started to get post nasal drip after a really bad cold. The mucas just seems to get stuck in my oesophagus until i cough it up. I am contantly getting the feeling of fluid stuck at the back of my throat which is annoying me and i never know when i am going to cough all this mucas up which is embarrassing and horrible.
I have asked my gp if this is anything to do with the dysphagis/achalasia and they just raise there hands as and not say anything as if to say who knows.
I have been taking antihistamines daily which is hlping but as soon as i miss one it is back and i am coughing a lot as if i need to clear the mucus.
Does anyone else get this with the achalasia.
