Reflux with esophageal spasm is possible.

That does not explain pressure in the head...which can be migraine

Migraine can often go along with GI symptoms.

You have not really asked a question.

Did you have a specific question?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have done several blood test and mri for my back and they didn't see anything, what other test is necessary to get a proper diagnosis, or what treatment can I take for the reflux, I always get the pressure in the head same time with chest ache and severe back pain, the pain is more like a bruising in my back and chest, I also feel breathless, and like I have something stuck in my throat, then a soar throat too
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.

Treatment depends on the cause.

If panic....SSRI.

If structural..the structural treatment, and this is often over looked.

The doctor to see is:

a. Physical medicine and rehabilitation for a manual medicine program.

b. Osteopathic physician for cranial/sacral manipulation.

For esophageal spasm: calcium channel blocker.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
