Gastritis is an extremely common finding after scopes; it seems many people have it and never really notice it.

Are you very stressed/anxious at the moment for whatever reason? if so, there are good chances that your physical symptoms are being brought on your mental situation. In which case, it might be worth considering that angle as the thing to tackle... Felling sick and having general stomach problems is a very common affect of stress and anxiety.

The biopsies may reveal H Pylori, a relatively harmless thing (20-30% of people have it), which nonetheless you should get rid of via antibiotics they will give you.

Good luck, and pls feel free to dm me if you want more info

I have had 2 endos and they are very benign and I've never heard of anyone having any ill physical impact of them.

I'm afraid that you are almost certainly anxious about the biopsies etc. I assume the doctor didn't tell you there was anything untoward from what he/she saw?

Assuming that is the case, you are almost certainly anxious about the biopsy etc. results as much as anything. I suggest you see your GP and discuss your anxiety with him/her, and see what they might suggest to help: there are both therapies and medicines that can help a lot with this.

Good luck!
