Fantastic Comment from a Squidoo Reader

This comment was sent to me regarding how this Lens Helped Him.

OMG When I read this Lens I about fainted! I was never told to drink cold water, like 8oz or more as soon as my symptom started. I just stumbled into this one day, or I should say night. I was getting that pain in my chest again, the one that hurts like a heart attack! I have been to the ER so many times in 5 years and sent home every time! One night it hit me again, the pain in the chest, up into the neck and on my right jaw and into my ear.

I went to the kitchen and drank a full 8oz of cold water, and bang, it was gone! This happened again and the water worked again!

I told my MD and she said to keep it up, and we will have a scope done to see it I did any damage to my Esophagus. This I want to find out!

So until them she (my MD) told me to keep the water handy and drink it ASAP when the pain starts up again.

Esophageal Spasm by Mayo Clinic:

What are the Symptoms of

Esophageal Spasm?

  • Intense, Painful squeezing pain in your chest that may feel like your having a heart attack

  • You may have a Difficult Time Swallowing which is called "Dysphagia"

  • Food or Liquid might come back up your Esophagus which is called"Regurgitation"

  • It may feel as though something is stuck in Your Throat which is referred to as "Globus"

Chest Pain and you are unsure of what is causing your symptom, you need to seek Medical Attention immediately.

What Causes

Esophageal Spasms

The causes of Esophageal Spasm

are not known at this time.

A Normal and Healthy Esophagus will cooridinate

the esophageal muscles to move your food down to your stomach which is referred

to as "Peristalsis". When you

are having Esophageal Spasm ( esophagus spasm ), this process is disrupted

which makes it more difficult for the lower esophagus muscles to coordinate to

move this food along down to your stomach.

There are 2 Types of Esophageal


Diffuse Esophageal Spasm

This is often accompanied by

regurgitation of food and liquids and it is more of an intermittent spasm.

Nutcracker Esophagus Spasm

The Nutcracker Esophageal Spasm is a strong painful

spasm in the esophagus. People with this

type of Esophagus Spasm are less likely to Regurgitate Liquids and Food.

What are some of the Risk

Factors that increase your risk of getting Esophageal Spasm

Women tend to get

esophagus spasms more frequently

Stress and Anxiety can

also contribute to Esophagus Spasm

Consuming Hot of Cold

Foods or Beverages


Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease

      I am so sorry you are hurting so much. Everyone needs to see a doctor regarding the pain they are experiencing to make sure you know the cause. My mom and I are not medical professionals so this is just a trick my mom wanted me to share because it helps her so much. Please see your doctor.

      For my mom, it is drinking the water really fast, as soon as the esophageal spasm start, without a breath, if possible. It stops the spasm right away. Thank you for sharing about the cold water.

      What if drinking the water makes the pain worse? Really hurting now....

      I've come back to see if anything has been added...I always get reassurance reading this. I did notice several people mentioning COLD water, yet you just mention water. I can't drink cold water, but the water room temp still works the same. I'm happy to share this pages info with those that experience these spasms.

      I accidentally discovered the water treatment a couple years ago. First time a spasm occurred I feared it could be a heart attack although the pain was not quite severe enough IMO. To be safe, I used some Bayer crystal aspirin, which seems to have been subsequently removed from the market and reportedly were not meant for heart attacks in the first place, and I poured what seemed to be close to 300+mg, a heart attack dose, into my palm, swallowed it, then drank some water. The pain stopped immediately, so I knew the aspirin did not work that quickly. I have since used the water treatment numerous time, and I always carry water with me. I later realized that I have had spasms for years although the symptoms were milder and in the middle of my back rather than chest, neck, jaw, etc. I told my gastro doc (I have take prilosec for over 15 years) about the water treatment and he said if that's all it takes to alleviate the pain then I'm pretty luck. Best wishes to all who suffer from this malady. BTW, I was about to fall asleep a few minutes ago when one struck, and that led me to go online and I found this nice page.

      Instead of cold water I drink warm water and have found that helpful. I think the act of drinking water quickly whether it is warm or cold is what alleviates the spasm. I have had these now for 20 years and only recently after many work ups have I figured it out!

      Also, if you have any problems with the esophagus it is probably best to avoid NSAIDS or anti-inflammatories. I hate to have to say that because they can help but the pain relief is not worth the esophageal irritation.

      I have shrinking muscles in my shoulder running up from my right arm and it can affect my neck in quite a tight spasm on occasion. I will have to try drinking the water and see if that helps with this as well. Thank you.

      I truly wish more doctors would learn and combine natural treatments in with their traditional prescriptions. Sometimes it is the simplest treatments which can do the very most good as your mom discovered with her esophageal spasm water treatment.

      @favored: No I don't. Definitely get it checked out by a doctor. I hope you find a solution.

      My moms really goes quickly and drinks the water as fast as she can. I even happened in the grocery store and the Deli gave her water.

      I wonder how she is able to drink in the middle of a spasm, but I'm glad it works. When I saw this title I was actually hoping to find a solution to another problem, but I'm glad I read about this. Know anything about what it's called when a person's throat closes when they are taking a drink of water and it effects their breathing?

      My mom had some choking problems which weren't acid reflux. She would end up throwing up. The doctor finally prescribed beta blockers, I think, and she has found relief. I wonder if this might be what her problem was.
