Hi Everyone! I have had acalasia for 12 years and had 2 fairly successful balloon dilatations. I still and have always suffered from intense chest pain attacks which can come at any time. Normally if i have eaten late at night or have drunk alcohol i am pretty certain of an attack in the middle of the night or following day. Although most of the attacks can come on for no apparent reason. What i want to know is if anyone has a cure/recommendation to stop the attacks? What exactly are they? And what exactly causes them?? I have tried loads of things and now reluctantly take strong painkillers to ease the pain which normally takes a good 30/45 mins to kick in.
