Question Diagnostic Tests question

Hello. Does anyone know what tests do doctors perform to determine the cause of your heartburn or to know what you have? Someone once told me they stick a tube down your throat, is that true? Does that hurt? Are there other ways? Thanks for any info.

Re: Diagnostic Tests question

HI !

If you can get an appointment with a gastroenterologist, he would most likely do an endoscopy to have a look into your stomach.

It is not something to fear as you are given medication and do not remember it at all.

I would start there and see what the doctor finds.
