The good news is, if you have fibro, you will not die from it. The bad news is you will have pain and fatigue but you can learn how to control it and still live a full and enjoyable life.
The endoscopy you are going to have is really a very easy test. I have had it done several times because I have Crohn's disease along with fibro It is an outpatient procedure and they will give you an IV and then add a little medication to put you to sleep for about 20 minutes or so. Then you wake up, all relaxed and you'll have someone drive you home. That's all there is to it.
Your anxiety seems to have kicked in big time and that can make you breathe weird and feel weak. Try breathing in through your nose...a large breath...and the blow it out your mouth like you were blowing through a straw. That will help relax you and it's like you are blowing away some anxiety. Then start focusing on something you enjoy doing. It could be reading or watching a movie. Perhaps working on a craft or just surfing the Net. I like a hot cup of tea at these times and the anxiety leaves because I'm not dwelling on it.
I have a scripture in my signature. I chose this one because anxiety is caused by fear. You seem to have a fear of dying. I really think, after all the tests that have been taken already, that if you had a serious illness you would already know about it. Don't let fear steal your life! You want to gain control and power over it. This will, in turn, give you a sound mind.
So, try to relax and I hope you have a good Thanksgiving.

God does not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
