So, as the title says, I’ve got to go in for an upper GI endoscopy tomorrow. Like some other people here, I have some digestive issues related to my anxiety, and I’ve also had a bit of acid reflux, so my doctor scheduled this test for me.
Now, while I am a bit scared about the results revealing something awful, the main thing I am terrified about is the procedure itself. I was under the impression that I’d be unconscious, but I just found out that it utilizes something called “conscious sedation”, and that aspect of it is what I find to be really freaky. It sounds like a really unpleasant procedure and I’d love to hear from other people with anxiety who have had it done.
I find myself worrying about something going wrong in the procedure, or that I’ll have a bad reaction to the sedative, or that it’s going to be an agonizing process. I didn’t realize I was actually going to be awake for it!
