    motility disorder
    brandi9107 posted:
    Hello. I have been recently diagnosed with a motility disorder in my esophagus. I am currently having the hardest time swallowing. My tongue doesn't want to move my food and my mouth has a weird sensation. Can this be caused by the motility disorder? I have also been experiencing tongue issues where all my taste buds are swollen and my mouth is very painful. Dentist/doctors tell me it is anxiety or burning tongue syndrome. I am really getting scared that I am going to lose the ability to swallow at all. Please help!
