I'm not sure as I will have to look that up but I do get horrible upper abdominal spasms that almost feel like a charlie horse there. I have minimal gerd but I at times feel like liquid and food are going down on the left side and not where they should 🙁 . Thank you for the suggestion I am going to google esophagus spasms now.

Hi, I have been experiencing severe left sided pain, pressure under and around the rib area with chronic constipation for two years now with no concrete answers. I have had every test you can think of and the only definite findings are a non alcoholic fatty liver and a hiatal hernia which has gotten bigger in the past year. I have had 2 endoscopes with show constant inflammation in the stomach but test neg for the H pylori. I also have a great deal of pressure in the diaphragm and my throat always feels irritated.  so was wondering if anyone else has had similar symptoms as I have been told some of mine are A typical for a HH, but I can't live like this anymore. I get a terrible tightening or spasm type feelings in the upper abdomen. Also if I lay on my right side I feel a pulling sensation_ Any input would be greatly appreciated*

Thank you Teresa, They put her on a medication that slows or blocks the production of prolactin and she had to have blood test frequently and MRI's every 6 months. With the medication keeping the tumor size down she has done very well and avoided surgery. She is now 34, married and very active but will have to be monitored for life.

Hello mkirby19 ,  My heart goes out to you as my daughter went through something similar and finding no answers is torture.  My daughter started complaining of stomach pain, feeling nausea and vomiting off and on from the age of 11.
  For over 3 years we had every test you can think of and no real answers. When no answers were found they blamed it on her nerves, depression, etc and she had to be home schooled. Then a doctor decided to check her hormones and found that she was producing to much Prolactin  and he ordered a MRI of her brain which turned out to be a pituitary tumor. This type of tumor I was told will not show on a cat scan.  Because all of her complaints had to do with the stomach we never thought to check anything else. She did not exhibit any of the normal symptoms people show with this type of brain tumor. I was later told that nausea and or vomiting that continues for long periods of time ( even if it's not everyday) should always be checked out for tumors.  My thoughts are with you and your daughter, nothing in this world is worse then having a sick child and not getting any answers.
