    I had one not too long ago. Before it, I was scared to death, then I realized it is only about 10-15 minutes! That's nothing!!! You will be fine and have the peace of mind that you are ok. Please try to sleep now!

    Hi!

    My mom is a gastroenterologist and I myself have had an endoscopy so I know a thing or two about the procedure! It's normal to feel nervous before an invasive procedure. I am sure you will be healthy!

    I have had many endoscopy they dont hurt and are quick. Nothing to loose sleep over at all. When its done you will feel fine. They have you sedated anyway so theres no gag reflex so no vomiting happens..nothing happens but you can hear them talking sometimes. Its very fast

    It is normal for your throat to be a little sore. Please don't worry about that.
