87 Possible Causes for Aphagia, Chest Pain Relieved by Nitroglycerin

  • Lower Esophageal Ring

    Between 1970 and 1978, we saw 24 patients with lower esophageal rings and complaints of episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Episodic aphagia results from impaction of food at the site of the ring. Since 1970, 88 patients have been seen with either dysphagia or episodic aphagia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The symptoms may be either episodic aphagia or progressive dysphagia, and the severity of symptoms is related to the diameter of the ring.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Esophageal Spasm

    […] helps distinguish this pain from angina pectoris Esophagus spasm Diffuse esophageal spasm is a neuromuscular disorder characterized by chest pain and difficulty in swallowing[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Thus, although nitrates may be classified as antianginal drugs, relief of chest or back pain by nitroglycerin (TNG) does not always mean that the pain is of cardiac origin[hon.ch] ; NOTE Nitroglycerin promptly relieves esophageal spasm causing confusion in the diagnosis; vigorous disordered contractions in the body of the esophagus are induced by ingestion[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Angina Pectoris

    pain is not relieved by nitroglycerin.[nlm.nih.gov] Typical presentation included substernal chest pain and chest pain aggravated by exercise or relieved with rest or nitroglycerin.[aafp.org] The goal of treatment is to control chest pain and prevent a heart attack. A medicine called nitroglycerin (NTG) can relieve an episode of pain.[nlm.nih.gov]
