I am a very anxiety driven person. Get very anxious over very minor issues. Take Xanax when needed for anxiety and panic attacks. I had an Endoscopy test scheduled today due to GERD. I was EXTREMELY anxious/nervous about
it but I can tell you that it is easy to accomplish......SO glad I did it! Even though my Mother has had it done three times and told me there was nothing to it I still couldn't relax, I wouldn't accept it......BUT it was true, the procedure only takes about
10 minutes and you're only on anesthesia for about
1/2 hr. I had mine done 7:00 AM, home by 8:30, and running errands about
1:30 that afternoon. I was a little bloated with gas, but who cares, didn't even have a sore throat. If you are dealing with reflux issues and have concerns, definitely have the scope done, I PROMISE YOU, the thoughts in your head, IF you're worried, are false.....it's painless! You'll be done and on your way before you know it. If I can handle it, TRUST ME, you can! I get anxiety about
EVERYTHING! Good luck!
