I'm getting a motility test tomorrow and that radio probe attached to monitor my ph. How bad is it when they put that tube into your nose and go down to the stomach? Will I be vomiting? Will I end up fighting the technician?
What about the 48 hr probe? Can you feel it when you eat and swallow? Will they want me to eat a gerd diet while they monitor me or a regular diet?
I would really appreciate as much feedback as possible because I'll be at the hospital tomorrow at 10:30am.

Sorry, I just saw your post.

I hope everything went okay.

I didn't feel my probe except when I turned my head and it was just a pulling sensation.

I ate normal during my test.
