So for the past three years (i am 27) I had dealt with what I had believed was GERD. I tried multiple medication to no avail and have been on a strict diet this entire time (no spicy,fried,acidic,caffeine,or alcohol). In october I finally went to Stanford and had tests done to see if it was something else. The doctor came back and said that the pain I had been feeling was Esophageal Spasms. Long story short has anyone else dealt with this? I've only tried one medication (cardizem) so far which worked for a month and then pooped out. The pain is so bad and lasts all day for days on end.Have any meds that helped you? I am so depressed Being in pain everyday sucks.
