I had the endoscopy yesterday to check out my GERD symptoms; everything looked normal, he said, but will get biopsy results to me next week. (By the way, I was SO NERVOUS about the procedure, crying at times beforehand, etc., but the propofol is amazing--knocked out, don't remember a thing!).

As soon as I left hospital, total nasal congestion, sneezing violently and often, still doing it 36 hours later (though benedryl has helped a little).

What IS this? I googled it and saw that other people have reported the same thing, though they're not sure if it's reaction to propofol or the nasal oxygen tube...

Anyone have this after the procedure?

Also, I feel a lump/irritation in my back (though I guess this could be the back of my esophagus, where biopsy was taken?) when I swallow or eat.
