Friends,


i really need your suggestions.

I am been having sore throat for 5 months now, and i have been visiting various doctors, from GP to ENT.

I was having slight pain in my lower throat , when i drank water , or ate something.

The ENT did a larygoscopy , but did not find anything which could concern him, So he ordered a Barium Swallow.

Now the results of the Barium Swallow say that the Cervical Esophagus showing slight irregularity of mucosal pattern, It also says that there is no evidence of esophageal strictures or masses, and normal motility is noted.
It also says that a minimal spontaneous reflux is present.

My next doctor appointment is in the last week of April,and i really need your interpretation of these finding , particularly the irregularity of mucosal pattern, what can cause these??

Waiting desperately for your answers.
