Doctor :   Acid reflux is a stomach disorder in which stomach contents including acids are regurgitated back up into the esophagus and throat. heartburn, pain or burning in the throat, bitter taste at the back of the throat, difficulty swallowing, chronic cough, and hoarseness caused by damage to the larynx, are just the effects of those people suffering from the effects and symptoms of acid reflux. There are some beliefs that people think what causes acid reflux, but they are mistaken to think that the disease and caused by too much stomach acid.

User :   how is an endoscopy done?
Doctor :   Upper endoscopy enables the physician to look inside the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum
Doctor :   the procedure you will swallow a thin, flexible, lighted tube called an endoscope (EN-doh-skope). Right before the procedure the physician will spray your throat with a numbing agent that may help prevent gagging. You may also receive pain medicine and a sedative to help you relax during the exam. The endoscope transmits an image of the inside of the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum, so the physician can carefully examine the lining of these organs. The scope also blows air into the stomach; this expands the folds of tissue and makes it easier for the physician to examine the stomach.
Doctor :   The physician can see abnormalities, like inflammation or bleeding, through the endoscope that don't show up well on x rays. The physician can also insert instruments into the scope to treat bleeding abnormalities or remove samples of tissue (biopsy) for further tests.
Possible complications of upper endoscopy include bleeding and puncture of the stomach lining. However, such complications are rare. Most people will probably have nothing more than a mild sore throat after the procedure.
The procedure takes 20 to 30 minutes. Because you will be sedated, you will need to rest at the endoscopy facility for 1 to 2 hours until the medication wears off.
