 Idiopathic Esophageal Spasms

Is anyone out there familiar with this disorder?  A small town vet friend
of mine has this problem, and it's getting worse.  Her small town doctor
doesn't seem to interested in doing anything about it, and he won't refer
her back to a specialist she saw a few years ago.

The spasms are getting worse...up to three hours... and the poor woman is
going insane.  She asked me to post to see what the net group may know
about the subject, especially in regards to what can be done to help
her.  Please respond via email....that way i can forward it to her email
account (she doesn't have internet access)

Thanks bunches in advance for any replies.  I've really enjoyed this
newsgroup!

My mother in law has this problem.  In her case, it happens when eating.
She got a lot of help by attending a class in swallowing designed for
people who have had strokes run by a speech therapist.
