Thank you for the reply. Nut cracker esophagus has been mentioned, I seem to wind up not having an episode when they are doing the tests, so the results don't show what is happening when I am having the pains.
At first the GI was running under the assumption that it was achalasia, until the barium swallow ruled it out. The hernia is minor and they don't have any concerns about
it at this time.
Fingers crossed for the 25th....
