    Endoscopy

    Anyone ever had a endoscopy im booked for one next Thursday and im terrified of the procedure and what they might find. My anxiety has been horrendous for the last year and I've suffered constant acid reflux for the same time . Any advice would be welcomed x

    Re: Endoscopy

    I had an endoscopy about 5/6 years ago. I opted not to have sedation and whilst I recall it being uncomfortable, it was okay. I was more freaked out about actually having it done so as soon as the dr said to me that everything looked good, I calmed down somewhat.

    One thing I will say is, be prepared for gagging and wretching when they are putting the camera down as your bodyís automatic response is to try and reject it. Once it gets past that point, itís just a case of lying still and staying calm.

    As you can imagine, itís not a super pleasant experience but if you have sedation I imagine youíll be fine.

    Iíve had awful reflux for years. Iím 34 now and I think Iíve probably suffered for about 10 years. Iíve been taking omeprazole for that long on and off anyway! Try not to worry, itís worse in your head than it will be when you do it

    Try not to worry. I had 5 years of reflux before I had my endoscopy.
