esophageal manometry test

I have not been able to swallow solid food for 9 months. I recently have had a manometry test done which showed a above normal high UES pressure measurement. My doctor says this is fine and that my problem is anxiety. I was wondering if I sent you my manometry readings if you could interpret them and let me know what you think. Thank you.
