    [NFOSD post: We receive about 300 inquires annually from patients or caregivers suffering from dysphagia. We typically refer them to qualified swallowing specialists, medical teams, and/or physicians. There are some common themes such as, I thought I was the only one, nobody believes me, they can’t find anything wrong with me, I’ve been abandoned by my social circle (including family), etc. In our goal to raise dysphagia awareness, we’ll post anonymized versions of these inquiries periodically.]

    I have been diagnosed with a serpentine esophagus. Lately it has been extremely stressful as swallowing capsules and gel pills adhere to my throat and melt together making it difficult to swallow and impedes my breathing. What other options do I have?
