My symptoms were (for at least 6 months, every single day) constant heartburn, esophageal spasms, constant cricopharyngeal spasm, general LPR symptoms, dyspepsia, burping/upper gas pains, dysphagia, coughing up mucus. PPIs seemed to make matters worse.
I was having major weight loss, and at some points thought I was going to die of this.
I seen a lot of published studies showing people getting improvements using Melatonin and also Tryptophan.
Also there exist many published scientific explanations on the biological mechanisms on how they would both improve digestive health, tighten the esophageal sphincter (through modulation of nitric oxide) and also improving the ability of the esophagus to heal acid damage, by various molecular mechanisms.
I began on 6mg of Melatonin at bed and 440mg of Tryptophan on an empty stomach 3x a day.
DAY 1: No notable effects
DAY 2: Nothing I could notice.
DAY 3: Noticed improvement in my voice
DAY 4: Last day of esophageal spasms(still heartburn after meals)
DAY 5: No cricopharyngeal spasm (improvements in swallowing). Less nausea, less burping, less gas, less heartburn.
DAY 6-10: Further improvements each day.
DAY 10+: Complete resolution of all symptoms.
I'm at day 14 and I still feel 100%, I'm rather shocked, No gas, no heartburn, no pain, no spasms, 100% fine swallowing, voice is loud and clear, sinuses clear, throat is clear. Even had a cup of coffee this morning, no issue, and eating big meals again.
Figured I should at least share this.
My only side effect is being drowsy in the morning.
