We tested the hypotheses that globus patients demonstrate oesophageal visceral hypersensitivity and aberrant viscerosomatic referral of oesophageal stimuli. Oesophageal visceral perception was assessed by oesophageal balloon distension and electrical stimulation in nine patients with globus and compared with 11 healthy controls. Oesophageal perception and pain thresholds were determined. Subjects recorded the area of thoracic viscerosomatic referral on a body map in response to each stimulus… CONTINUE READING
