I've had one full-blown esophageal spasm (Aug 09) a few 'close calls' and a number of episodes of early symptoms (throat tightening, difficulty breathing), all when bicycle racing/hard training in 50'ish degree temps. I'm 53, excellent health otherwise...anyone had this experience? Cold air via open-mouth breathing, under intense, physically demanding conditions?

Hi entropy5034,
Welcome to Healing Well! I'm so sorry to hear you're having esophageal fun at all. There are several members here who've had experience with them, but I'm not one of them. To me it sounds like a positioning racing requires you to lean forward, pushing on your stomach, and lowering the opportunity for gravity to keep the contents of your stomach where they belong. When acid migrates into the esophagus it can cause all kinds of problems. The delicate tissue (unlike the stomach) is not made to handle the acid.

I hope you find a solution very soon,
Take care,
