    Don‘t worry.. you won‘t feel a thing. 

    Just maybe a little sore throat afterwards (I didn‘t even had that) and your stool might be runny that day because of the anesthesia meds.

    I had my an endoscopy done a few years back,this is from my experience. I was given a sedative which completely numbed my senses. When I went into the operating room, I feel the cable being inserted down the throat and that triggered the gagging reflex, which is normal, but unpleasant. Although, a few second after, I found myself out of it (senses were numb) by round about this point. That is all I remember before I gained full control of my senses and found myself sitting on a chair with a nurse shortly after coming in to check on me. It was an odd experience and not as bad as I expected.

    Hi

    Just get them to put you out for your endoscopy, you feel absolutely nothing and wake up not even knowing it’s happened. You might experience a slightly sore throat, but it’s nothing, only lasts for a short while, think mine was like that for about half an hour. 👍😁

    I remember going in, getting knocked out, then waking up with a sore throat for the rest of the day. But that is it. It was easy and painless.

    Don't be worried because it's not nearly as bad as you think it'll be! I had one done almost a year ago and you're sedated to the point where you can't feel a thing. You may feel the scope entering or leaving (but again, you're sedated and it doesn't hurt in any way) but other than that, it's a quick procedure. 

    You'll probably have a bit of a sore throat, like everyone's said, but other than that you'll feel like yourself in no time!

      Please don’t worry about it. Trust me. You will laugh about it later and regret how much time you wasted with being scared.. 

      It’s not worth it since you won’t feel a thing.. just go with the anesthesia and they knock you out for that time..

      and don’t take the extra spray though for the throat to numb it. You won’t need it and it’s really disgusting and you think you can’t swallow.

    Treatment is dependent on the cause of gastritis. Sometimes over-the-counter drugs like antacids may relieve some symptoms of the condition. Here are some other ways to treat the condition as discussed by Dr Nisha:

    Avoiding the diet which causes it (above mentioned triggers)

    Taking acid suppressant medications

    Avoiding stress

    ‘The course of medications and lifestyle changes again depend on the severity of gastritis. If the condition is caused by H.pylori infection, then an antibiotic course is prescribed,’ she adds.

      I am so glad you survived the endoscopy.. when I read that they are just doing the spray I was so worried since I hated that and it made me panic.. 

      And it sounds like you need to heal your stomach what you dan do with a diet change.
