hi there,im pretty new here. I am booked in for an endoscopy tomorrow,and im starting to get worried now, my dr. thinks I am getting throat spasms(globus?) and from reading through older threads on here it does sound like it. It would be great to hear from people with a similar problem.x

keaw,
 
Don't get stuck in "what if ?" thinking.  Just keep telling yourself what your feeling is anxiety and anxiety, no matter how uncomfortable, cannot physically hurt you.
You will do well tomorrow and the medications used will calm you down so you will hardly remember a thing about the scope.
 
Kindly,
Kitt

The EGD really is an easy procedure. With the sedation very few ever remember anything from it. I've lost count of how many I have had. Rest easy and things will go well.

Take care,
Bill
