Do U have Achalasia: Achalasia is defined by absent peristalsis in the esophagus & incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (les). It may be a "primary" esophageal motility disorder, or "secondary" to cancers invading the les (pseudoachalasia), chagas disease from reduviid bug bites, amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, eosinophilic infiltration. Similar motor abnormalities can be seen with diabetes & ciip.
