I have been putting off my endoscopy app because I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and I'm scare of getting it done. I've had GERD for over 8 years but this year my symptoms have gotten worst. I have shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing, I have to now sleep sitting down, I get chest pain and when I eat in the afternoon I have pieces of food come back up the next morning. I'm honestly fed up with all these symptoms but I'm also terrified of getting the Endoscopy. My mom had an endoscopy years back and she said she felt they only lightly sedated her so she could not fight the procedure because she could feel everything and it was like being tortured! I was told my Dr would use propofol for the endoscopy but I will not be completely asleep.. So I'm guessing I will go thru the same thing my mom did and it makes me so anxious I can't sleep!
