I had my endoscopy this morning.  The worst part was trying to get the IV in my arm.  Veins were small.  Anyway, the doctor said I have mild gastrititis and he did a biopsy.  He wanted to know if I had a full cardiac workup due to the chest pain.  Told him the last time I had a stress test was in December of 2007, so now am thinking maybe I need to go see a cardiologist and do all the tests again.  Anyway, he wants me to keep taking the Zegerid as he said gastritis can cause GERD and am to go back in 3 weeks and see how that goes.  He is thinking about doing tests for esophageal spasms, as that might be what it is. 
Just thought I would update you guys.
