Thank you for trusting HCM

Dear please check it out that this pain may look like cardiac origin.

causes of esophageal pain is diffuse esophageal spasms , achalasia cardia,reflux disease etc..

First we need to evaluate the cause and confirm that pain not originating from cardia.

please consult your physician he will take ecg, x-ray ,and Upper GI scopy and treat you accordingly.

Take care.
