Hi, poem is a relatively new procedure which involves cutting one layer of the muscular coat of the esophagus so as to relive the pressure at the junction between the food pipe and stomach when food passes down. Since this is a newer procedure, skills and results are variable. If you have not been relieved by the poems procedure, I would recommend you repeat a manometry and check the pressure at the ge junction. If the pressure is still high and doesn't reduce on swallowing, you will need a formal surgery, known as a cardiomyotomy, with possible extended myotomy of the esophagus. This can be done by keyhole surgery. However, you need a thorough evaluation before surgical intervention.

Recurrent viral infection can be a cause of frequent swelling of the parotid glands and the node although allergy has been implicated as a cause of recurrent parotid gland swelling, there are no previous reports of such a phenomenon occurring in the submandibular gland.

You need to improve the tone of the muscles in a rhythmical manner. If you do that with proper diet restriction nothing will happen to you. Body pain is there after gym activity due to tiredness and you need to consume good protein and iron diet in your body which will help you to break the fatigue and body pain. You have to reduce the weight by walking minimum 3-4 kms per day. Slowly reduce the weight and slowly avoid adding salt in the diet which will help you to prevent water retention in the body. Excess salt in general leads to water in the body which might be the reason for you legs to pain as the leg will automatically become oedematous.

It is not possible for food to remain stuck in throat for one month and you may be feeling it so. You have to get a check up by ENT.
