Any post-ops here who had some weird left chest spasms for a second or two? i’m about 8 weeks post-op and these weird spasms started last sunday. i did check with my pcp and cardiologist and they don’t think it’s cardiac related since it only lasts for a second or two but it happens on and off throughout the day. she mentioned something called esophageal spasms. anyone here ever had that and are you having the same symptom as i do?

I have EOS (Eosinophilic Esophagitis) which occasionally causes esophageal spasms and I get chest pains from it (also upper abdomenal pain). Be careful when you eat because an esophageal spasm when you eat can lead to choking. If it's really bothering you get your doctor to refer you to a gastroenterologist to help you figure out why it keeps happening. Don't forget to tell them you've had weight loss surgery, especially if they decide to do an upper endoscopy!
