just before Christmas I had a lump sensation in my throat which led to me having an endoscopy two weeks ago. For about one week I had constant chest pain (went to A&E the same night as endoscopy to check heart etc, everything normal).
I now have a pain in my chest whenever I swallow food and after the food goes down there a sharp pain in my sternum. Prior to the endoscopy none of these symptoms were present. I could eat food no problem and I've never had any form of chest pain.
Has anyone experienced this? Has something been damaged during the endoscopy?
ps the results of the endoscopy showed that I've had relux leading to Barretts oesophagus. (No physical symptoms of this prior to endoscopy though!).
