Esophageal spasm tricks

I have found that a combination of endoscopic dilation and Xanax relieves me of chest pain and squeezing pain from the spasms. We did rule out anxiety as a cause for them before resorting to the dilation, along with any physical causes. The dose of Xanax was only adjusted once. This combo provides almost total relief, and also helps with difficulty swallowing.
