Achalasia

Anyone had experience with this - basically difficulty swallowing because the esophagus can't relax?

The word you want is dysphasia I think. I'm in a head and neck cancer group where is is common after radiation to the throat. Who have you seen? Speech and language therapists are often useful.

Sorry, I see that they are related conditions

Confirmed as not cancer related. Has had barium swallow and also camera down throat.

My son has intermittent oesophageal spasm, but his resting pressure isn’t constantly high. He has been prescribed Nifedipine, which we have not started yet.

I have a friend with this condition. As you explain she has difficulty swallowing due to muscle spasms.
