I have been diagnosed with spasms of the esophagus. They often turn into a painful pressure in the middle of my chest. It feels as though I am having a heart attack, but heart disease has been ruled out. Is there a treatment for these spasms?

— Richard, Louisiana

Diffuse esophageal spasm is a relatively uncommon disorder that results from abnormal movements of the muscles lining the esophagus. The painful pressure mimics the pain of a heart attack, making it important to rule out heart disease, as you have done. Fortunately, there are effective treatments for esophageal spasms, including calcium channel blockers and nitrates. (Coincidentally, these medications are also used to treat angina, a symptom of heart disease.)

Some patients note that cold or hot foods, particularly liquids, can exacerbate the spasms. If you notice this, avoid foods and beverages at excessive temperatures. Try keeping a log of when you have the spasms so you can attempt to discern a pattern. Also, speak to your doctor about the medications I mentioned above to see whether they might be appropriate for you.
