Alcohol Abuse and Acid Reflux

Hello all.

Starting last Christmas (2010), I have been suffering relentless pain from acid reflux and an esophageal spasm. I know what brought it all on. I abused alcohol all the time, usually 70 proof Captain Morgan's rum. After a night of heavy drinking, the next couple nights the acid reflux would be terrible but would eventually wear off. Finally, after one night last December, it didn't wear off, and the spasm started. From that point on, I completely stopped drinking alcohol, but the problem isn't going away this time. I fear that I have irreversibly damaged my LES, and that I will never be the same.

My question is has anyone had a normal digestive tract with acid issues only brought on by alcohol abuse? Will it heal again? I cannot even do P90X now because it triggers the spasm. I am starting the get desperate.

Thank you.
