What is Achalasia?

ACAC Trustee Silvia Davey produced an insightful Paper about her experience with Achalasia. Please do review it here.  

Achalasia Action strives to provide useful, up-to-date information on matters of concern to individuals with achalasia and other members of the achalasia community. The information we give should not be used as a means of diagnosis, determining treatment, nor replace the relationship between you, your doctors and other healthcare professionals. For diagnosis and treatment options, you are urged to consult your physician.
