Never heard of a video swallow, Wayne. Have you had it? Sure would like someone to find a good solution to this acid reflux. I seem to be having a bit more success now that I'm not drinking tap water , just spring water. Don't have near as much heartburn as I did.

If the video swallow you are talking about is also known as a barium swallow or upper GI, then yes I have had one. My personal results were negative even though other tests proved that I have GERD. It did show lack of motility in my lower esphagus though.

No not a barium tablet esophagram. A video swallow study where you actually eat food... apple sauce, crackers, drink and watch how you swallow. It showed I had a weak swallow and food was not going down all the way. Explained it like a toilet flushing..  Instead of a nice strong flush.. it was weak where it didn't all go down.. and had to swallow a few times or have a drink to rinse it all down.
