DermatoMyositis is "beating-up" on my esophagus... suffering from diffuse esophageal spasms; recently diagnosed. Painful! ????
Signs and symptoms of esophageal spasms include:
Squeezing pain in your chest. The pain is often intense, and you might mistake it for heart pain (angina). ...
Difficulty swallowing, sometimes related to swallowing specific substances, such as red wine or extremely hot or cold liquids.
The feeling that an object is stuck in your throat.
The return of food and liquids back up your esophagus (regurgitation).
