chest pain after upper endoscopy

I had an upper endoscopy yesterday and am now experiencing the sore throat which I expected, but also chest pain. It feels like it did when they were passing the tube yesterday. The nurse did a follow up call but just told me  "Hmm, that's not usual, let the doctor know if it doesn't go away" Kind of an off hand answer, I thought. Has anyone else experienced this and is it usual? Everything else seems fine, but being a nurse myself of course I think of the rare and scary things like esophageal perforation. Any input would be appreciated.

I'd just watch it, I think they say 24 hours? I know I had the sore throat and it hurt to breathe in deeply for the whole day afterwards, it just felt sore all the way down to my stomach. Have to say wasn't as pleasent of an experiance as they set it up to be.

Yes, it really was a bigger thing than anyone let on. I certainly never want to do it again.

I too am experiencing a level 8 chest pain on a scale of 1-10. I had my endoscopy/colonoscopy this morning. I've not checked my temperature, but he took biopsies from my stomach, intestine and colon. He also removed at least one polyp. I have suffered with IBD for 10+ years so this is not my first or either of these procedures. However, the chest and upper abdominal pain is severe. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm certain I've passes the air that they inserted. I feel as if the pain in my chest is radiating thru to my back.Help!
