    Spasm relief
    jud49 posted:
    I have been getting these spasms for a few years. Doctors appear not to have many answers. I have been through many test including nuclear test on the gale bladder, endoscopic, colon ostomy, heart test including monitor and just about anything the heart Dr could think of. Finally the internist suggested possible spasms of the esophagus, but there was not much they could do for it.

    Well, just by accident a friend of mine who has the same problem, was having a real bad one in the middle of the night. After 25 minutes of pain, with no relief in sight, so took a drink of "Peach Scnapps". She texted me to let me know what she discovered.Her pain was gone, although she was very sore the next day. (the sooner you take it the less pain to follow) I'm no a drinker, but, I'm sure anyone that has had these attacks would try anything. I have taken a hardy swallow about 4 times now when an attack was developing. After 5 minutes or so, I know its not going away. This has been a great relief for me. I guess the alcohol relaxes the esophagus. If anyone tries it, post your results.
