Post motility disorder/esophageal spasms

My story starts in February 2003 when I felt like there was food stuck in my throat and chest and extreme pain in the right side of my chest. I have had barium swallow, manometry with tensilon injection, 24 ph probe, botox injection, bougie dilation and balloon dilation plus numerous medications. I can't eat anything solid without pain, so I have basically been forced to a liquid diet. I have lost a total of 25 lbs so far. Nothing has worked. I was diagnosed with , GERD, dysphagia, esophageal spasms and the muscles of my esophagus do not contract right which in turn does not propel the food properly hence getting stuck. I have now been prescribed Norvasc and Imdur (these are both heart meds). I started taking the Norvasc and thought I was going to die. The Norvasc actually made the pains in my chest and back worse. Anyone had this happen?
