Anyone else get these? Every once in awhile I do and they're quite unpleasant. It lasts for a few minutes, thankfully not too long.

This typically occurs while I'm in the process of eating. One trigger seems to be canned salmon for some reason.

I think I get those on occasion, and to me they feel like the way heart attacks are described. Pretty painful, but fortunately don't last more than a few minutes. I've had drinking cold water trigger those spasms, and find relief by chewing and swallowing a couple Tums. I don't know why that works ( unless the spasms are caused by acid reflux), but the relief from the Tums tells me I'm not having a heart attack.

Acid can cause that.

Yes, that's it. At least, seems about right. I haven't had a heart attack to date.

"Corkscrew esophagus" in diffuse esophageal spasm. It looks as bad as it feels.

If that's a barium swallow it must have lasted longer than a few minutes.
