Look into swallowing: If ENT had no insight into the problem, i'd talk with your primary doc more about it. Difficulty swallowing has many causes. It can be something blocking the food... Or the esophagus isn't moving food correctly... Or the nerves that control the esophagus aren't functioning properly... Or not enough saliva is being produced. You get the picture. Your pcp might suggest seeing a gi. Good luck!
