If you have esophageal spasm as confirmed by manometry [pressure measurements of the esophagus], they are treated with either:

a. calcium channel blockers.

b. Long acting nitrites, such as isordil.

They are not treated with nitroglycerine as this would be too short acting.

But, it might give a very short term relief.

OK, let me know if you have more questions. Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up needed.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
