hey- i need to get an endoscopy pretty soon, and i have to say that i am a little freaked out. i have heard that you are completely put under, but i have also heard that you are just given stuff so you wont feel it, which i definitely dont think i could handle. whats the whole procedure like? is it painful? thanks! oh ya, and i have one more question, do any of you have thyroid problems? i have recently been told i need to have my blood tested for thyroid problems. i was just wondering if this is common in celiacs. thanks!

The endoscopy is nothing to worry about -- it really is painless. I didn't feel a thing and don't remember it at all.

Thyroid issues can be common for celiacs so it is good to have your doctor keep an eye on that and do the blood test with your annual blook work up. If it becomes a problem, usually it just requires taking a pill to correct it -- also painless.

good luck.

Before I had mine done I was really nervous. I told the doctor that when I went in and he gave me a little more sedative. It was very easy, I had no problems. Afterwards I went home and slept for about 12 hours.
