Obviously, increased gastric acidity or reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus can cause discomfort and changes to the lining of the esophagus.  Whether an ulcer has formed or not needs to be assessed during the endoscopy.  At the same time, your physician will be able to examine the lining of the stomach and esophagus for any other concerns.  The important thing is that you are getting examined.  Best wishes.
