OMG - I think I FINALLY found the cure!!! I have been throwing up daily for a couple of years. Been to gastro, been to surgeon, filled, unfilled, you name it. Finally! Today, gastro really listened and put me on levsin to stop the esophageal spasms. The spasms may not be caused by reflux but just by Primary Esophageal Spasms. Took one tonight and am able to eat!!!!! Have been eating crappy wrong things for 2-3 years - whatever will go down (chips, ice cream, etc). This is such a great feeling to NOT feel spasms laying in wait for me to swallow even water!!! Please pray that this works and that I can now get another adjustment and start losing again!!!

I am so happy for you that you figured something out. You must have been miserable.
