After Endoscopy worries..
« on: December 11, 2013, 02:26:06 PM »
I had an upper Endoscopy done yesterday, thankfully everything looked fine, except today I am having weird discomfort when I swallow. Every time I swallow food/water I get this weird pain in the middle of my chest. Like as If I can feel it moving through this spot. I don't know if this is serious or if I am just freaking myself out. My mom says it's nothing, I don't know. Has anyone had a similar feeling before?

The scope can irritate some tissue. It will swell in the days following the endoscopy. It also will heal completely pretty fast. Your mom is right. Try drinking cold, sugarfree beverages to reduce the swelling a little, but above all; have a little patience.

You're right. It was my first time getting it done and it was pretty uncomfortable for it to be painful every time I swallow. I have been worrying way too much lately and it's only making everything worse..
