I had an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy last Monday (9/14). Colonoscopy was normal and endoscopy showed rings; biopsy showed eosinophilic esophagitis. Both procedures went smoothly and I felt okay the same day. However, after the medications wore off I started having throat pain. It hurt to swallow solid foods, so I stuck to liquids. Here I am almost two weeks later and my throat still REALLY hurts...in fact, it seems worse. The back of my throat hurts, as well as deeper down (the upper portion of my esophagus). I can't eat solids, I've lost some weight, and it's not getting better. My voice is hoarse and I've had a little bit of a cough. I don't have a fever, haven't vomited, and haven't experienced severe chest pain. I'm worried about my throat because this does not seem typical after an EGD. I don't think this is a perforation, because I'd be really, really sick. They did take biopsies, but would my throat really hurt for two weeks post EGD? My GI office doesn't seem interested in helping and I can't talk to my GI directly. Should I go to the ER? Any input is greatly appreciated.
