Question about Certain Tests...
For my supposed acid reflux (my only symptoms are nausea, overall not feeling "well" like I would need to throw up, but never do, sometimes just a lump in my throat or difficulty swallowing, but mostly it's just nausea), I've only done a few tests so far. I did the endoscopy which was fairly normal, and a gastric emptying study (normal). I've also had several sonograms, blood tests, etc, which all come out normal. I'm not really ready to do the Bravo pH test, but other than that, my doctors have mentioned these tests none of which I've done...
or Barium Swallow
Are any of these the same thing? What does each test? Which would you recommend I start with? Are any dangerous or bothersome at all?
My doc also mentioned a Cat scan of my stomach, but I don't really want to do radiation. Do you think this would be a necessary test to do?
Any info highly appreciated! Thanks.
