Hi. How long has this been going on? Are you having problems swallowing?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

going on a year yes problem with swallowing

OK Mary. Do you have other medical conditions and has your doctor evaluated this problem?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have asthma ,blood pressure

OK but does your doctor know about the swallowing problem and, if so, has he done any tests to see what's going on?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

doctor sending me for heart test

OK Mary. I don't think this particular problem has something to do with your heart. It sounds like you may have a problem with a hiatal hernia and gastric reflux and you may also have a problem with your stomach emptying too slowly. You need to be referred to a gastroenterologist for upper endoscopy and a gastric emptying study. If the problem is reflux, medications like Nexium and Prilosec can deal with that and if it's a gastric emptying problem Reglan can deal with that
