Early hours Tuesday< I ended up in A & E with suspected heart attack. After a mass of tests, my heart was finally cleared but with no answer as to what had caused my "attack".
Last night another attack, but less severe this time, which gave me the chance to listen to my body and really pay attention to what was going on.
Both attacks were preceded by eating late and lying down not long after. I have gastro related symptoms, possibly connected with my thyroid and take lanzoprazole.
The feeling was not heartburn or reflux, more like a blockage causing spasm. So after a bit of late night research I think I may have an answer. Esophageal Spasm !
Not nice but much less scary than the alternatives.
Has anyone else experienced similar attacks. It seems that our thyroids tendency to cause leaky gut and other gastrointestinal symptoms could suggest a link.
