Hi there..

I was wondering if anyone ever has these spasms? I had really bad heart-burn the other night and, in addition to that, I was very upset about a chronic back problem I have. I'm 20 and I have severe chronic pain...I take morphine..have had surgery, will have more etc. ect ect. Anyway, I think because I got so stressed out, my heart-burn turned into these spasms...I can't eat anything without, 30 seconds later, my esophagus tightening and loosening. It's not painful..just pretty uncomfortable. Anyway, I talked with an NP and she just told me to drink maalox...but I don't think she understood that I didn't just have heart-burn. Does anyone know how to get rid of them? I know there is some kind of nitroglycerine medication..but is there anything else?

thanks-
Dani
