In brief: Avoid dysphagia
Esophageal dysmotilities come in many flavors--some involve poorly coordinated movement of food down the esophagus, others spasms, & still others may involve an esophagus with very little muscle activity.
Regardless of the actual dysmotility diagnosed, in all cases large dry pieces of poorly chewed food may become lodged before transiting to the stomach. Take small bites, chew well, lots of water.
