    What condition has pain in the throat that will spread down the esophagus if you do not drink something...will go away sooner or as soon as you drink something, hot or cold?

    I have occasional pain and tightness that starts usually, in my throat or the side of the throat and will spread down the esophagus or to the middle of the chest...but will go away when I drink something, hot or cold.

Also, his calcium score has increased by 60 points in the last 3 years but is still considered low. All of this doesn't follow the "multiple organ....

    Thinking ahead... heart transplant

    I just found out that someone I know is staying in the hospital until they can get a heart transplant... let’s call them B. B is a close relative of one of my best friends so I don’t have all the info on B’s condition. But since B is being kept at the hospital, B’s condition must be dire and I’m not sure if B will get a heart in time. My question: How often do these stories end well? I know the transplant list is long and heart transplant is a risky surgery... Do I need to be prepared to travel ....
