I had my endoscopy this morning and it went well.  He had a little bit of trouble since I have TMJ, but he was able to find out a couple things.
1. I have scarring on my esophagus and it is constricted so he widened it with the balloon thingy
2. I have a small hiatal hernia
3. I may have a candida infection
The swallowing thing has all ready improved since then.  He put me on prilosec and now I will wait to get the culture back on the infection.  I am supposed to see him in one week to decide if I need to have another endoscopy.  So good news, I believe.
