Re: SCARED!!! upcoming laryngoscopy... numbing question

You will be fine, don't worry. I've had 4 laryngoscopys over the years and I never had a problem. The stuff they spray up there only numbs your nose and upper throat, it doesn't go deep into your esophagus or anything like that. You won't have difficulty breathing or swallowing. The procedure itself lasts only a few minutes and the numbing medication wears off pretty quickly
