An esophageal motility disorder is any medical disorder causing difficulty in swallowing, regurgitation of food and a spasm-type pain which can be brought on by an allergic reaction to certain foods. The most prominent one is dysphagia.


There are contractions along the lower esophagus when this condition happens. These contractions prevent the passage of food. [1]
