| | Someone PLEASE HELP!
I have been having what I believe to be esophageal spasms. It is so hard to describe, but it is like a fluttering in my chest. Sometimes lower toward my stomach, sometimes a little higher in the esophagus area. Almost feels like my heart is doing flips. Of course with the spasms comes panic attacks. I have had acid reflux for years, and I take omeprazole 40mg per day. What worries me the most now is they are happening very often. They used to only happen maybe 3 or 4 times a day, but for the past 2 weeks I am having hundreds of flutters a day. It is worse when setting. It gets better when standing or walking. They have never been this frequent, or lasted this long. Does anyone else have these all the time? If I am slumped over (like at the computer) they are very frequent. My heart has always checked out good in every test I have had, so I don't feel like it is my heart. It has to be the spasms. I am losing my mind! If it would stop for a day, or even a few hours that would be great, but it is everyday all day long. I have been up since 3:00am and I bet it has fluttered over 100 times. Please let me know if any of you have these like this. I need to know that I am not crazy and I am not the only one. My doctor just acts like its no big deal. Has anyone found anything that will make them go away? Even for a little while. Generally I don't have any pain with them, but occasionally and very rarely I will have chest pain that runs up into my jaw. That is very rare. Please guys give me some advise, or just some helpful words. I am very thankful to have found this site. Thank you.
