I've already had a "barium swallow," and a "modified barium swallow" (in addition to PH testing, manometry, endoscopy, and colonoscopy)...After all of that, and after suffering for 2 years, I thought that I have had ALL the tests!
But since I STILL have food getting stuck in my throat, and the lump feeling..i was told that i have to get a swallowing study down. Does anyone know what this is? Apparently it ALSO involves drinking barium but it's not a barium swallow?? What does it entail and what will it measure that no other tests I had done measure?
