Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
There is a lot that can be done actually
Many medicines can help
Actually I know this sounds strange but the best meds are those that work for erectile dysfunction like viagra or cialis. They relax the muscles of the esophagus
Also calcium channel blockers like verapamil work well too.
I would ask about these medicines
Finally there is no increases risk of cancer with her condition so don't worry about that.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thank you very much dr.Fill
But what are the side effects of this medicines?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
Possibly some dizziness and facial flushing but the side effects are well worth how much it helps the condition
Minimal side effects in other words
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
in Russia was very popular Almagel and omegoprozol
What about them?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
They are ok. They just reduce stomach acid though. They don't help the spasm
She can try them. But I think the meds I suggest to stop the spasm will help more
Please don't forget a positive rating. I appreciate it
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As i understand , the stomach acid is not an only cause of the spasm ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
That is correct. That is why the medicines you mentioned won't work
