... nitro and a antispasmodic, they don't really help. I asked my doctor for a prescription for something for the pain and she said it would not help the pain. I am frustrated that she could not understand the pain level from these spasams. Anyone else have problems getting the point across to a doctor?
yes I have also had trouble with the doctor understanding the difficulty of this problem. I pretty much have found out how to care for it myself. I found that it occurs when I eat something that I'm allergic to and the nerves from my esophagus are affected and they go into spasms. I started taking Benadryl every night before I go to bed and haven't had spasms for years. However, over the last few months I have not
been careful with the foods I have been eating and drinking. I have been eating and drinking things I'm allergic to -that- along with stress as well as my sensitivity to smell, perfumes and highly odorous things will do it to me as well, I had a horrible attack last night that I could not control with benadryl. In my research this morning I've decided to try a number of things. I know that yellow mustard stops muscle cramps so next time I'm going to try that.I also read that taking a little peppermint oil and some water can stop the contractions of the esophagus.I am also going to put a heating pad on my chest when this happens.
