esophagitis spasms or trapped gas in chest

they say I have this. so I take Nitrostat when chest gas hurts bad.
Amiodipine. cal. blocker to stop pain
Lorazepam to calm me when I am in spasm
Dicyclomine for ill. bowel symdron, supose to help trapped gas.
None of these are helping me at all. It seems I am having these spells all day long now. Searching the internet, thousands of people have this, but I guess there is no known remedy for. Also have tried all home remedys also to no avail. Why don't doctors know what this actually is and how to really treat it instead of guessing and have you try this and that.

Re: esophagitis spasms or trapped gas in chest

Does this happen after eating? Is it possible that food is getting stuck in your chest? In that case, you might need an endoscopy to find out exactly why.
