My daughter suffers fromesophageal spasm .
She womited yesterday many times . Had pain in her chest and abdomen
We have been seeing the doctor in Cromwell hospital who said that nothing can be done much and she is healthy
But yesterday i was reading on internet that if condition worthens then it may cause tumor
Please tell me , if really there is nothing to be helped her and hoe to prevent deterioration of the illness
Thanks a lot
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.

Thank you very much dr.Fill
But what are the side effects of this medicines?
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 3 years ago.
in Russia was very popular Almagel and omegoprozol
What about them?
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

As i understand , the stomach acid is not an only cause of the spasm ?
That is correct. That is why the medicines you mentioned won't work
