Hello @rashida

I noticed you are interested in learning more about nutcracker esophagus. It sounds as if you have found some helpful things to do when you have an episode such as the sips of water and raising the head of your bed. Do you take any meds as well?

Have these symptoms been going on for a long time and have you talked with a doctor about it?

@hopeful33250 – yes, I take 1 Lanzoprazole (generic Prevacid) at bedtime. I used to take it in the morning but I found it helped more at bedtime so I switched from morning to bedtime.

I have had this problem for several years, and yes, I am under doctor’s supervision. The sips of water and raising the head of the bed is just something I experimented with, it worked, so I continue to do that. I have an endoscopy every five years or so (along with a colonoscopy) to check for Barrett’s esophagus. So far, so good! 🙂
