I just got back form a routine visit to the doctor's office. I have been taking Prevacid for about 2 years now and I was taking Acifex before that to control my acid reflux. Since I have been taking acid-pump blocker for such a long time, My GP think that I need to have a EGD (EsophagoGastroduoDenoscopy). I know this is kind of routine, but I am never really pleased when I have to be put under. I guess it is the control freak in me. The last time I was close to being put under was at the dentist and I had really bad paranoia issues. As soon as it was finished, I was fine, but it still worries me. The the last line of the release: "Death is extremely rare, but remains a remote possibility." kind of works on my separation anxiety. I don't feel comfortable with this.
