Gerdo, have you discussed the issue with your doctor and tried any of the GI muscle relaxing meds? Or something like nitroglycerin?

yes my PCP told me to see a specialist and it's been months now and I have a month to go before my apt. I've called the specialist also...they tell me to wait for my apt
