I recently had a very nasty episode of chestpain .. it felt a little like hearburn.. but not quite the same. The pain was continuous all across my chest and had probs breathing.. I was at work and was taken to hospital.. they kept me in for 24hours.. thinking it was my heart.. it wasn't... I then had a gastreoscopy.. to find out why it happened to me.. it turns out that my Oesophagus is not working as it should.. nerves are firing in different places out of time with one another.. they call it a Nut Cracker Oesophagus as it goes into such a spasm it could crack a nut... apparently it was very evident during the procedure... markedly so. As it isn't isolated to one spot I now need a GTN spray to stop it ... consultant thought it might be my Fibromyalgia giving mixed signals.. in my tubes and also in my bowel where it also goes into spasm and was told it was IBS ... Has anyone else experienced this???? V scarey and also slightly concerned it will affect how the nerves operate other organs....please post if you have.. and is this new as I haven't seen this before
