Muscle spasm: It may be due to contraction of muscles in the food pipe. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Ans: Sounds musculoskeletal. Need more history. Did you ever injure that side? Left or right handed? Do you exercise a lot. Need a better history.
