|Achalasia is: Achalasia is a relatively rare disorder
of the smooth muscle of the esophagus. The esophagus is a muscular
tube that carries food and liquids from the mouth to the stomach. Achalasia
makes it difficult for food and liquid to pass into the stomach from the
esophagus. This is a relatively rare disorder and it is often difficult
to get an early diagnosis of this disease. The mission of this support group
is to help people find information and support to help them cope and live
with this disorder. We will be updating this website on a regular basis.
