Hi Denise it's been a while since I communicated with you. Hope everything is going well with you. Recently I experienced an esophageal spasm and it is causing my gerd and acid reflux to act up. My food does not feel as though it is going into my stomach but feels like it is stuck in my throat. Right in the center of breast bone there is slight pain. I checked out esophageal spasms on a website and it said there is pain in the center of breast bone which make you feel like you are having an heart attack and food feel as though it is stuck in your throat. I saw my doctor and it is not my heart. Does that mean my wrap has come loose. Please respond

pennie,

I've had those and they hurt pretty bad! I doubt it has caused your wrap to come undone. I'm told if it comes undone, you know it. Food could be sitting on your wrap. Try and drink something warm before you eat. The esophagus is a "dumb" organ and will produce symptoms like you're having, but it's really nothing to worry about. If I were you, give your GI doc a call and express your concerns.

Thank you John for responding. My problem have gotten better. It is so frightening when something new occur and you don't know what it is. I am so thankful for this sight and for your response. I have an appointment with my GI doc tomorrow. I'm thinking the salad I ate with Italian dressing caused all the problems.
