Re: Any emetophobics had an endoscopy done?
I know that my post is VERY late but I wanted to share my experience. I'm also an extreme emetophobe and had an upper endoscopy done several years ago. I too was terrified of the procedure but had to have it due to constant unexplained nausea. Anyway, before the procedure they sprayed my throat with an awful tasting substance then sedated me. I went right to sleep BUT awoke during the start of the procedure as the doc was inserting the tube. I remember gagging/choking and trying to pull the tube back out. I heard the doc say "No, No, No" as he forced it back in. I don't remember anything after that. Maybe they hit me over the head to knock me back out. LOL! I don't know. Hopefully, your experience was smoother.
