I had the Bravo pH test, and though the 2 day test went fine, a week later began having esophgeal spasms, and had to have the capsule removed through endoscopy.  Several wks later, i'm still having the spasms.  How long should this take to go away?  Oh, my results came back telling me nothing I didn't already know - I have bad acid reflux - with no mention of suggestions on how to control it.

Hello there pushinupthedaisies.

You may not like the advice I have for you, but the absolute best thing you can do is call your doctor and let him know what is going on, and see what he says to do.

The odds are great that it is nothing, but you can never be too careful.

Congratulations on the good test results! I know, bad acid reflux stinks, but it is something you already that is good.

Please read here, there are plenty of suggestions on how to control your acid reflux.

I am wondering why your doctor didn't give you any suggestions.

Please do get in touch with him and tell him what you are feeling. Please do keep us posted on what he says, and how you are doing!

Wishing you the best!

I called the dr. that did the bravo procedure several times and his office told me to go to the ER! Ugh! Time for a new gastroenterologist i think!
