Spasms: This sounds more like recurrent intestinal spasms although simultaneous spasms of intestines, esophagus and outlet of stomach(pylorospasm) could occur. Such irritability could be stress related,food intolerance,or early viral gastroenteritis. If symptoms persist consult your physician. In the meantime avoid caffeine, hot and cold beverages and take in a soft bland diet.
