In brief: Pain
One cause to be considered is reflux esophagitis which can be treated with appropriate ppi therapy.
Also to be considered is esophagesl motility disorders such as achalasia and diffuse esophageal spasm which are also readily ttreated.I would suggest you have an esophageal motility study and or a pH monitiring study which can diferentiate these disorders.
