Coughing: If you had some violent coughing during the procedure (I am guessing you were sedated and would't necessarily remember. Endoscopy can also cause retching. Coughing or retching violently could strain the cartilage in the chest wall, resulting in costochondritis. the treatment is aspirin or motrin. It can linger on, 6 months would not be surprising.
