Relaxed and sleepy: You should feel relaxed and sleepy, and the procedure won't bother you at all.See 1 more doctor answer
A sedative is a medication that induces calm, relaxation, and usually, decreases anxiety. Sedatives - especially at higher doses - can induce sleep.

Yes: Or at least you should. Procedural sedation is the norm and depending where you get the procedure, who is doing it and who is administering the sedation, will determine the level of sedation you will have (mild/moderate/deep).
Sedatives: Mild sedatives are usually used for minor scope procedure, along with local anesthetic spray to throat to get the scope to go in without discomfort.
Stomach, by...: ...Definition. Of course on the way in, the doctor will also get a good look at the esophagus, and may elect to go farther, into the small bowel.
Neither have risk: When both procedures carried out under mild anesthersia, the patient essentailly experiences no side effect. With colonoscopy air however has to inflate bowel for visualization and being NPO isn't suffiecient to clean out the colon. GoLytley has to be employed. Minor risk with some bx close to bowel mucosa where perforation has resulted. Especially in colon.
Can be if you reflux: Hiatal hernias often cause GERD, also known as reflux. This feels like heartburn, and over time can severely damage your esophagus. Omeprazole is a good medicine to lessen the symptoms of GERD, but your best bet for the long term is surgery. Get it done while you're still on your parents' policy.

Probably: Talk with your pcp. Do not want to start to shotgun the approach to diagnosis. See what the doc says and try to follow the advice.
For a few months I've had really chronic digestive issues. I had a gastroscopy and nothing was wrong but almost anytime I eat anything I feel sick.
Follow up: Did they take biopsies of your esophagus, stomach and duodenum during your endoscopy? A normal biopsy would be more reassuring. Also, there are other causes of digestive issue such as lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome, and microscopic colitis that appear normal on endoscopy. Follow up with your GI doctor so can evaluate you for these other issues. Also, a colonoscopy may also help.
Gastric adenoma: These are quite rare and it's an interesting dilemma. How old are you? As gastric neoplasms are more common in certain populations, what is your ethnicity? Is it possible that there was a colonoscopy done at the same time with the polyp having originated in the colon?See 1 more doctor answer
