In Reply to: Esophageal spasms? anyone had these? posted by Dani on August 25, 2000 at 10:15:40:
: 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?
YES, I'VE READ HEALTHY DIGESTION THE NATURAL WAY AND IT SAYS ARGININE, 1 GRAM TWO TO FOUR TIMES A DAY FOR A MONTH, HAS BEEN SHOWN TO DECREASE THE FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY OF CHEST PAIN ATTACKS ASSOCIATED WITH SPASTIC ESOPHAGEAL DISORDERS WITHOUT THE ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS SEEN WITH DRUGS FOR THIS PROBLEM.DON'T TAKE THIS AMINO ACID IF YOU ARE PREGNANT.
