Spinothalamic neurones responding to visceral stimuli alone have never been observed25 . Nociceptors from different viscera project onto the same spinal neurone: cells in the thoracic cord responding to cutaneous nerve stimulation were showri to be excited by both coronary and pulmonary artery occlusion in cats 26 . Foreman and Ammon 27 identified spinothalamic tract cells located in the upper thoracic cord of monkeys cells responding to painful cutaneous stimuli and both to intracardiac bradykinin and to gallbladder distension.

Examples include patients who have spontaneous episodes of pain during prolonged monitoring of oesophageal pH and motility, some of which are related to acid and others to motility disturbances. Others may have spontaneous pain episodes related to abnormal motility and a positive acid perfusion test. Some patients may have spontaneous pain related to acid reflux and positive edrophonium or balloon distension tests, or a combination of positive acid perfusion, edrophonium and/or balloon distension tests.
