Hello all! Im a 26 year old Female. about
a year ago (and sence) I was having GERD problems. Pain near Larynx when swallowing(only saliva) which has now passed. Food traveling slowley down esophagus(hasnt happend in months), random sharp pain in chest, which I will also feel sometimes if I turn my head alot and swallow. I feel it in the same area. My reflux isnt too bad but when I eat/drink the wrong thing of course I feel it. I was off of my nexium for 2 months and didnt even have an issue.
Anyway, I am VERY much a hypochondriac and ALWAYS think the worst. My doctor had put in a referral for me about 6 months ago right after he learned of my GERD to get an endoscopy. My fear of what they would find along with being sedated scared me away and I never did it. My husband had one and I seen how he couldnt even remember what they told him their findings were. I HATE the thought of not hearing what is going on with me BEFORE someone else. Im scared to death of sedation. He has recently put in ANOTHER referral for me to get it done and I KNOW I have to but am too scared of the findings. I know I sound silly. Along with that, in the past year We've spent TONS on ultrasounds, ct scans.....
Any suggestions?What are my chances of them finding anything 'horrible'. Did YOU remember after you woke up????
