I have been getting severe spasms in my upper stomach and oesophagus for a long time now and it's mostly at night that it bothers me really bad. I had a cholecystectomy last year and it did not help it any. Any suggestion on how to treat it???
Have you been diagnosed with spasms of the stomach and/or esophagus? I have been diagnosed with severe spasms of the gut (stomache). I have been taking Levsin (anti-spasm medication). Talk to your gastro doc. and ask about anti-spasm medications and which, if any, might be right for you. I have been hospitalized 3 times recently for these things. Before that it was 2 years ago for my last ER visit. I have to tell you, my spasms started after my gallbladder surgery. I am currently seeking more medical tests and exams for these spasms (because they are interferring with my everyday life.) My regular physician beleives I may have achalasia. It is a disorder with the esophagus and can cause mild symptoms and severe ones too. Unfortunely I have the severe end of it. I am hoping for a permanent cure but for now I take the meds. and it seems to be keeping me out of the hospital for the time being.
Hope this helps.
Hi, I was wondering what all your symptoms were with the spasms?? Ever since i had a Nissen Fundoplication and Gallbladder out last year, i get really bad chest pain when i am hungry. When i eat something it feels better. It's very very painful tho and feels like i'm having a heartattack. I can't do anything else when this happens cause it is so painful.I was wondering if it was esophagus spasms?? Can you help me, thanks
i am 23 and have been having spasms of the esphougus since i was 16. It has gotten worse in the last few years. I have been to the hosiptal many times. The doctors say i have the spasms due to acid reflux. I know food can play a role in aggravating my stomach. Watch what you eat. Avoid: alcohol, caffiene, chocotale, onions, green peppers, tomotoes, mints, spicy things. That should help a bit. When i get these attacks I take pain pills now. The antispasm medicine you were on i believe makes it worse. I have taken many of those and it doens't work. I take vicodine now. I only take those when it is a bad one. DOn't take it when the pain is minor you will be takeing these things all the time. The pain medicine works and saves a trip to the ER. Ask your doc.
