Esophageal motility : Could be an esophageal motility disorder such as a nutcracker esophagus, or distal (diffuse) esophageal spasm to name a couple. This is diagnosed with an esophageal motility or manometry study where a tube is placed through the nose and into the stomach. Test takes about 15' to complete. Ask your doctor if this is appropriate. Hope this helps!
