Complex: Could an entity known now as ineffective esophageal motility (iem). This is commonly associated with gerd. Dysmotility can also be due to diabetes and scleroderma. See a general surgeon or gastroenterologist with expertise in esophageal and foregut disorders for more info.

? No surgery: Based on the findings: hypothesize les normal relaxation means that you are likely to get occasional symptoms of heart burn or reflux but the lower esophageal sphincter relaxes as needed- good news. The severe smooth muscle dysfunction can occasionally be seen in people with chagas' disease. This is seen more in asiatic region. This means that your ability to swallow solid foods is diminished.
