This is an: essentially NORMAL report and does not explain your symptoms (I do not know your symptoms however OBVIOUSLY they possibly include difficulty swallowing, food getting stuck, heartburn, regurgitation or some combination of the above! Next step consult with gastroenterologist specializing in the esophagus! Hope this helps! Dr Z
