Esophageal disorder: Your symptoms could be related to esophageal function versus a scarring or narrowing of the esophagus, and deserve further workup. How they tie into a headache is unclear. If your problem is actually swallowing then it could be neurologic. If it's that food gets stuck on the way down it's more likely the esophagus and you should see a gastroenterologist.
