Has Anyone Else Had Esophageal Spasms

Has Anyone Else Had Esophageal Spasms

Last night I experienced esophageal spasms that lasted for 5 hours and had nothing to do with ingesting liquids or food. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Yes, for 30 years. 4 weeks ago had an open Nissen Funoplication. Second one in 9 years. Lupus and Methotrexate contributed to this esophageal situation.My stomach herniated into the diaphragm, had a hernia. 12 inch incision, spread ribs, put things back in place. In hospital 7 nights.
Before this second surgery was having ten spasms a week.Surgeon really prescribes drinking hot water, also take Levsin, it's like nitro.
Surgeon said if the spasms start up again to call the clinic. Simple procedure, swallowing a dictator.
Hope this helps..for years folks told me it was anxiety attacks.
