Despite the GI MAP indicating I have HP, my GI doctor wants to do an endoscopy next week before treating HP. He said because I've had burping and heartburn, he needs to see my stomach/esophagus and do biopsies before deciding on treatment.

I have no day to day pain in my stomach and I can eat anything I want except sugary carbonated drinks (those make my stomach ache bad). Other than that, I have some burping and with that, I get heartburn at times.

Is it overkill to do an EGD? I am having anxiety about the EGD and the knock-out drug they will use while doing it.

it sounds scary, but you wont feel or remember a thing. So dont worry. It's good to have a record of your current stomach condition by EGD. So, in the future, for some reason that you need another EGD, at least you have something to compare with.
