I haven't been able to eat solids for a month lost about 40 pounds so the doctor put it in as an emergency endoscopy anyway he didn't find anything but he did widen something and I can swallow better now but now my throat hurts and I'm having mild chest pains when i swallow. I swear I cant get a break, not sure if this is normal or not I just want to eat for god sake. I'm also scared I caught that freaking virus by going into the hospital but I was desperate to eat again. Oh well guess we will see in the next two weeks.

I am sorry this is happening to you.  

It sounds like you had this procedure done for reasons other than  investigating a celiac disease diagnosis or do you already have have celiac disease in addition to the swallowing issues?  

I am sure your GI gave you information about this procedure and it’s potential side effects.  Consider calling your GI and addressing your concerns.

Call your doctor and ask for the doctor to call you back or to speak to a nurse. They will know what procedure was done and if this is something you should worry about. Hope you get some answers and are feeling better soon.
