running the scope down my throat

I have been having trouble with my stomach.  It has been aching alot.  Also, I have been having trouble with my voice.. It keeps going out all of a sudden.  My question is if they will be able to see what is wrong with my throat by running the scope down my throat.

Hi,
I went to the dr. with my friend for the same problem.  They numbed her throat and put a small tube there.  It didn't go down far.  They were able to tell her that she has acid reflux (which we already knew) and they made her say words and found out that her vocal cords weren't working correctly. We were able to watch her vocal cords work on a small screen.  They even took pictures that she too home with her. They told her to do steam treatments for her voice, not eat after 8:00 pm, and give up caffine, chocolate and coffee.  She did this for awhile and got better, but it's hard to stick too.  I can tell when she's been drinking too much caffine.  Also, they told her that whispering is worse than talking, so don't do that.
Good luck to you and don't be scared or anything.  It really wasn't a bad test at all and we went and had lunch at Chevy's resturant    afterward!  :-)
