Anyone ever had this done ? They do a endoscopy on me like every 2 or 3 years....Heres whats different with this one below...Just the spasm in the back that comes and goes i dont understand...Read below....


Had a endoscopy done monday' by the same dr thats done at least 4 on me...They done the esophageal dilation again also...Its been about 2 years since they stretched it the last time...No problems ever before...This time i felt fine till i went home and a few hours later started having like a spasm shooting from about mid left back through to my chest...The spasms just hit fast and leave...Now the spasms just seem to be in the back area only...It was monday about 10:30 when they finnished the test...I called the dr office and the nurse said this was normal sometimes and could last for a few days...Says its caused from the Dilatation...Im suppose to take some levsin she said would help....thanks

Due to a case of Barrett's esophagus, I have it (endoscopy)done yearly, and the Doc told me that if I got spasm's, don't call him 'cause I was gonna die within 72 hours...Just kidding. I have a game that I play where I try to fight the sleep drug with all my might, but it always ends up like "sleep washed over the Dude." And to think Michael Jackson took that stuff every night!

An esophageal dilator is one of the products my company makes. I feel for you guys that have to get that procedure, as I sure as heck wouldn't want that done to me.

thats what happens to me. doc said the stomach acid was burning the opening to my stomach and closing it up, had it stretched and went off the prevacid meds and now its back again. not as bad though.

in the end my stepfather has good results so far..


but its no secret that years of him drinking sugary expensive liquors and eating spicy foods did its damage to the lining in his throat

im 34 and realizing my system isnt as tough as it was in college{eating hot wings daily-combined with drinking}..

Had it so bad that I got where I forced food down when it would get stuck. Well, one time to many forcing it down and ripped my esophagus open. Almost drowned in my own stomach bile. Got a 10K ride on Life Flight....don't remember it though. Now take Protonix 2 times a day and no problems at all.
