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.

Symptoms[edit]

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