I am sorry to read of your pain and your trouble obtaining approval for tests a Dr. feels you should have. I am not sure why the Dr. has decided use these scans unless he feels you problem is heart related.
Here is a link that explains the CT SCAN and basically the SCAN is pretty easy.
Have you ever had a GI physician dx you with GERD or LPR ?
I hope you get the OK for the tests and please let us know how the Scan turns out once you get it done.
