Endoscopy today and now feel very tight throat and breathing bad....

I had an endoscopy today, I know they biopsied a my esohphogus and stomach but my throat feels so tight as well as my stomach hurts and my breathing is difficult. Does this sound normal, I'm freaking out a bit!

Re: Endoscopy today and now feel very tight throat and breathing bad....

When I had mine a few months ago I felt fine afterward (except a bit tired from anesthia) and never had any effects from it. I would never even known it was done. Most people have no problems but everyone is different. If you dont feel better after day or two I would call the Dr. Good luck

The only trouble I had was from the anesthesia - dizzy and sick to my stomach. I would put a call into your doctor tonight there must be someone on call.

Re: Endoscopy today and now feel very tight throat and breathing bad....

Hi alex (((((((((alex))))))))))) Glad this is out of the way for you.
I felt awful for days after. I had severe *****ing pains in stomach and a raw 'lump' inside base of my throat (my 'lumps' are normally lower down, between breast area) I thought I'd been scraped and scratched! I think some of us have more Visceral hypersensitivity. Try not to be scared - after about a weeks things settle to there normal horrid level (sigh!)

Re: Endoscopy today and now feel very tight throat and breathing bad....

Hey Alex, I remember that my throat hurt for a day or so afte my endoscopy.
My doctor found a polyp in my upper stomach and removed that. I didn't have any stomach problems. Hope they find an answer for you. My endoscopy did not find any problems despite my having all the symptoms of reflux.
