I had one about 15 months ago. I live north west of Boston and there was only one doctor at one hospital in Boston that I could go to. So needless to say, I had to wait a while. I actually was admitted to my local hospital and transfered into the city hoping to get the test sooner, but no luck. Basically it was the same as a regular Endoscopy. They give you similar drugs to a colonoscopy and put the tube down your throat. I really didn't know what was going on, so it wasn't too bad. I did have a sore throat for the rest of the day.

In my case they didn't find anything other than what they were seeing in the Endoscopies I had had done. I was having repeated gastritis and they couldn't find a cause. So I guess they were thinking that maybe they could find something else going on, but they came up empty.

I hope it proves more beneficial for you and you get some results. At least I would rather they find something they can treat than have to keep looking.

Have your doctors considered that the Remicade or MTX might be causing the elevated liver enzymes?

You sound how I felt last year. FRUSTRATED AND AT THE END OF YOUR ROPE. Please keep trying to find the cause of your pain. Pain is not normal and you shouldn't have to live with it. So, make your doctors keep looking and testing until one of 2 things happen. 1. They find out what is wrong and fix it. 2. They don't find out what is wrong, but your bloodwork is better and your pain is gone (sometimes the body does heal itself).

And don't worry about the EU, it isn't too bad, especially as far as the type of test we have to go through. Endoscopies in general were always the ONE test i feared, but once I had one, I realized I had wasted a lot of energy on something that isn't all that bad.
