Hello. I had a nasal endoscopy done yesterday. ENT said I have reflux and am taking medicine. Since that visit yesterday my throat is a little sore. Also during the exam the Dr. Pressed around my Adams apple No pain yesterday but today it is a little sore if I touch it. Is this normal after a nasal endoscopy? If so how long might these symptoms last?
