... I was scared of endoscopy too and had it done twice. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be at all. First of all there is no pain. Just gag reflex and it only happens when it passes through one part of the throat. It took really a minute to finish the diagnosis. ... (6 replies)

... Hi to all who are about to have an endoscopy and have concerns. I read many accounts this board, most of them positive and a few negative, yet I was still scared to death of this procedure!

... Hi, I'm 17 and I have been having heart burn on and off for the last few years. It hasn't really been a problem but this last weekend it wen't really bad.

I still want to get it... (3 replies)
... said the worst part is the gagging. Problem is that's what scares me the most. I'll take a kidney stone any day over the thought of someone putting something down my throat. I don't even like going to the dentist. Will I really be sedated enough to cooperate? ... (10 replies)
... You're definitely getting worked up over nothing. It's a very simple, painless procedure that takes about 5 minutes. If you're sedated you won't feel or remember much of anything (I had my most recent endoscopy without sedation and it was no big deal). Given your level of anxiety about the procedure you should definitely have the sedation - it will be over with before... (10 replies)
... screen. I would dose off and on. Had no pain and the Doc even went into my small intestint and they usually do not do that. They asked me to turn around a couple of times. That I could handle.

... I've had two, both with sedation. You go in, fill out the paperwork, and then they take you back to the pre-procedure area. The nurse will start an IV and take your pulse and blood pressure and stuff. When they are ready, they wheel you into the procedure room. The first one I had to scoot over onto another table, the second one I stayed on the bed that they wheeled me in... (10 replies)
... I agree with the previous poster. The usual procedure is a twilight sleep. You shouldn't feel a thing. If you are unsure whether your doctor uses anesthesia I would call first and state your preference. If he doesn't want to use it you can always find another doctor but I have never encountered, or heard of, this procedure without it. (10 replies)
