    I've had that..it's easy. You might have a bit of a sore throat afterwards, but I didn't. Otherwise, a bit of something cold and smooth, they suggested yogurt or ice cream, soothes the throat.

    Ha! I misread it as Badass!

    Once again propofol is helping the neuro Symptoms , but not as well as January colonoscopy.

    Saw no sign of GERD, all looked normal. Took biopsies. Said it's most likely due to MS. Could do further tests at tertiary med facilities, but if it's motility problem, treatment is muscle relaxants which I already take,

    Said to talk to neuro once results are back.

    Thanks for your comments and support!

    The univ called to set up evaluation with esophagus manometry study. If the find achalasia, there are four Tx strategies, all with mild success and difficulty.

    I will wait for biopsy and call neuro then. It's a very uncomfortable problem.
