Esophageal Motility Test and 24-Hour pH Test

Hello everyone,

I am scheduled for an Esophageal Motility Test and a 24-Hour pH Test next Tuesday. I am a little (okay, maybe a lot would be a better word) worried about the tests, because I have a significant gag reflex. How uncomfortable is the insertion of the tube? And if I am understanding things correctly, it seems that it is a different tube for each test, so I will have to have a tube inserted twice.

Any words of wisdom from those who have had either or both of these tests?

Thank you!!
