What symptoms are: Difficult? What tests were done? What type of swallowing test? Manometry (measures muscle contractions of esophagus)? Not all GI docs do those, so might be a different specialist.

Swallowing : And speaking problems common with eds. May need a gastroenterologist familiar with eds patients. Sites such as ednf.Org may help. May need further characterization of your type of eds with your rheumatologist also.
