Questions?

Your doctor may be able to diagnose your problem from your description of your symptoms. Your doctor may ask you questions, examine you, and possibly do tests. Certain tests can confirm the presence of an ulcer, show if you have a hiatal hernia, or diagnose you with GERD. One test that may be done is gastrointestinal endoscopy (also called EGD), which the doctor will use a small flexible tube thinner than most of the food you swallow to examine the stomach and digestive tract. Talk with your physician to help you make an informed decision on what may be best for you.
