Did he give you anything for the spasms? I had esophageal spasms for a couple weeks at first, but what was never given anything. The spasms felt like twitches and little shocks. One night, I went to the ER and they gave me an Ativan because I was obviously freaking out. Magically, the spasms disappeared. I still had huge pain in the esophagus and stomach, but at least the spasms stopped. Good luck to ya, I know how scary it is. Hang in there!

I had a few spasms but I managed to not be too stressed out once I knew and understood it was all related to GERD and that I was not having a heart attack...I have had some success with my chiropractor for my hiatal hernia, and it also helped reduce the spasms, if you google for info it might be something you might want to try..

I wouldn't be scared because your symptoms are classic GERD, and so your not unique, and your definitely not going to have a heart attack, once you really believe that things should be easier, as stress can only exasperate GERD

The amount of panic attacks I keep getting is stupid xxx it feels like palpitations in my throat middle of chest and where my hernia is I can't cope with this at all xxx
