Ive been thinking to how my achalasia started and I somehow feel that it is triggered by a traumatic event or high stress levels. I was stalked my freshman year of high school and had a period of time where I started to not eat as much, then all of the sudden I got really sick and couldn't eat for 3 days without the food coming up I would get really bad nausea. Basically everything after that became progressively worse. I feel like it was somehow associated with that really stressful point in my life.
Also as a side note I would get the flu every year for the past couple of year during the winter time. When i was sick and had a bad fever my swallowing felt completely normal. As I recovered from the flu my achalasia was completely back and I could barely swallow. This makes me think somehow achalasia is a immune disorder where somehow the body attacks the esophagus specifically and when I was sick my body was busy fighting off the flu to attack my esophagus.
These are just my observations. Does anyone have similar stories or just input on this?
