I went through a period of time where I had about 10 in a year or so, and most of those had endoscopies as well. I was having a lot of trouble and they couldn't figure out why. I have now been having them about once every 18 months or so. But I saw my doctor in May and thought for sure he would order one since I have gradually been feeling a bit worse over time, nothing major, just a little bit of increase in symptoms. But since all my blood work seems fine, he doesn't want to do any further testing. Not sure if I'm OK with this or not. I did see him just a few days after his wife had a baby so maybe he was off his game.
