Hi I am 45 and have had Achalasia for 25 years but only diagnosed for around 10. I learnt to live with it for a long time and manage to force food into my stomach with water and fizzy drinks. so much so I never lost weight I am actually over weight but that the stop the anxiety and frustration of not been able to eat normally especially in public, belching and running to toilet to vomit in middle of very meal. On occasions I have really bad days and can't swallow anything at all but I force and force myself making me light headed at times. I have to sleep practally sat up with a sick bowl at my side as I often wake up with little food bolus in my mouth or coughing with everything floating around. I have had one BOTOX done around 14 months ago which eased the symptoms slightly but think they are getting worse again. At the weekend I ate pork and crackling atba wedding and havnt been able to swallow hardly anything since I'm currently on holiday caravaning with my grandsons but this is totally getting me down keep breaking down in tears today and you can tell people about it but nobody really understands I've tried everything I have learnt to what I call have a break through but nothing working fed up and hungry 😭 xx Am sure something is getting through or I did be on my knees by now xx
