Fear of doing gastroscopy is there any other way to check, abdominal ultrasound or something can be
Hello, if the gastrointestinal pain for several years, it is recommended to consider the gastroscopy of other tests is difficult to replace this test, abdominal ultrasound these also need to check, but can not replace the gastroscopy, it is recommended to go to the local hospital gastroenterology or surgery to consult.
The best tests for gastrointestinal pain are colonoscopy and gastroscopy, and if you are afraid you can do painless ones. Painless colonoscopy and gastroscopy are a little more expensive, but the pain is not.Other tests are also available, such as barium meal imaging of the digestive tract, but they are not as accurate as colonoscopy and gastroscopy.
If you have been in pain for several years, you should consider this as a result of gastritis, the effect of abdominal ultrasound is not too great, I suggest doing gastroscopy to see if there are uncomfortable symptoms or inflammation.
