Thought I would add another discussion to this forum being as the other discussions was in regards to being sick etc which I still Am
I had an appointment at the Hospital for an endoscopy. and yes the injections do sting'. its not like a normal blood test injection. the needle itself is like a sharp sting to the vein as all needles are. But they needed to do that so they could put the plastic tube into the vein to put drugs into it. for pain relief etc'. I was sedated for Im sure 30 minutes to 45 minutes'. . It is nerve racking going in before hand. I saw all people from middle aged to young to old'. not just my age all differenet ages'. and alot of them had to wear gowns before the procedure. A lot of these old people are strong willed' I Can tell you that much'.I had 3 injections . and yes they sting'. but its what had to be done'. etc'. My partner couldnt be there with me as he had work, it was a little disappointing cause I saw everyone elses partners there'. but he had reasons like His Work'. etc'. not like his reasons were health issues'.'. . the nurses there were brilliant'. really nice'and Very Calm I find it annoying when people put their minor issues ahead of people who have bigger issues' like health issues. its silly'.,I call that Self centred'. anyway. the result of the test was normal. I think the endoscopy was just to find out if my stomach was normal and osephagus, pharynx and duodenum. , because ieverything come back normal I now have been asked to go back again for another test'. I still have the symptoms of the constant burping and white coating on my tongue and the nauseated feeling and the feeling the need to throw up I have been asked to go back for a PH monitoring to find out if I have acid reflux'. . the pantoprazole that I usually take doenst really do much for me , but I have an appointment with my GP tomorrow;. so I will be filling her in with everything I went through at the hospital'.I felt disorientated before going in for an endoscopy'. the feeling of not knowing what they are doing to you '. is kind of scary and then being sedated and waking up 45 minutes later is like you are on a high, I prefer that , than being awake during the whole time'. etc'.As long as they didnt do anything else etc'.I had an Upper GI endoscopy'. my sister was asking whether I have had a gluten free test done on me , and no I havent'. The worse part about the endoscopy was being injected 3 times etc'. and being wheeled from room to room and not knowing what they are doing while you are sedated'. but 4/5 generally usually get sedated'. etc'. Im glad its over but it still doesnt explain my symptoms and how it can be reduced and what options there are to help the symptoms decrease rather than increase'. etc'cause I still suffer' 7 months is a very long time I can tell you that much
