I have recently been diagnosed with Achalasia Type 1. I really would love to hear from others with this condition - symptoms, advice and so forth. I am waiting for the consult with a surgeon. I am Canadian, and where I live, it takes months to get a consult, and then months to get treatment. I have difficulty swallowing both food and liquids. After eating, there is getting to be a sensation of a 'pressure' in my esophagus, that is beginning to hurt. Like stuffing a foot into a shoe too small for you. I also have the cardio-spasms, and they have started to happen at night, during my sleep. I have found that dark chocolate and ginger-ale, help relax the esp. muscle, and stomach sphincter a little, to get the food/liquid to move down and into the stomach. Does anyone have difficulty with constipation? Please respond to me, as I need to hear as much as possible about this condition.
