January 5, 2017 Other FGIMD

I am one of only 1/100,000 people to get to have achalasia (0.001% of the population).  Thinking back, my story really started in my 20's.  At the age of 23 when I was pregnant, I remember having an "air bubble" lodged in my upper stomach/lower esophagus.  I would beat my back against wall trying to get it up.  This was just a tiny nuissance and didn't really bother me much.
