    Hello madam...achalasia presents with difficulty swallowing both LIQUIDs & SOLIDS at the same time unlike other difficulty swallowing that start with SOLIDS.It can also cause night time regurgitation/dribbling of food &weight loss. No it's not associated with Asthma but it's associated with autoimmune diseases like lupus,uveitis and Sjogren's syndrome.
