I had an upper gi endoscopy yesterday. They took 3 biopsies and stretched my esophagus. Thy did find that I have two spots of erosion in my stomach lining. But last night and today I am having a lot of pain in my chest. A little throat pain too but the chest pain is absolutely horrible. Very nauseous and have a hard time trying to eat. Ate scrambled eggs and man it hurts going down! Ouch! Also have mid back pains now too which I never had. GI doc says I just need to eat soft foods and take Prilosec. Which Prilosec causes me to be nauseous I think and it makes my heart palpitate and seem to be beating faster than normal. Doesn’t make my stomach or esophagus feel any better at all. But I’ve had the horrible chest pains before the upper GI as well. After the endoscopy procedure it’s sagnificantly worse though. Before it didn’t hurt to swallow food down. Just ached like heartburn in general. But now it’s super painful. Hoping it goes away soon! I’ve been eating low fat soft foods lately with not much relief. Scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, and finely chopped up mashed up turkey how much softer can ya get? And applesauce. Anyone out there have any trouble with their upper GI endoscopy procedure? And how long did it take for your pain to go away? Anything help to ease the pain? Thanks in advance! Just stressed with all of this.
