The endoscopy is a good diagnostic test, it gives the doctor a first hand look at the inside of your stomach, who knows maybe you might have an ulcer or something? I know way back in my younger days I was having allot of stomach problems, and they did the scope, and sure enough I had a duodenal ulcer and that was back before they treated ulcers with antibiotics. They use to think stomach ulcers was all caused by stress and diet. But now days they know better than that!! According to Mayo Clinic they say in their article on stomach ulcers: (" Although stress and spicy foods were once thought to be the main causes of peptic ulcers, doctors now know that the cause of most ulcers is the corkscrew-shaped bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). ") and now they treat ulcers with antibiotics and acid blockers and antiacids. The ultra sound is also a very good test, as it can show the doctor allot, especially with the structure of the stomach. There are so many things that can cause your stomach pain, it is really good that your doctor is taking it seriously and following up to find out what is really going on, and causing your stomach pain. I sure hope that they can diagnose it quickly, and it is something easy to fix!
I do wish you well, and good luck to you with those test.
P.S. The Endoscope it a breeze couchtater has it about right, I don't remember very much about it, they sprayed my mouth and throat with something and then injected something into the IV an next thing I knew I was being woke up, and it was all over with.
