I've had a heart cath done and it came out clear and the gastroenterology test i had done also came out clear, what could the chest pain be?

Other tests needed: Which gastroenterology test did you have? A negative upper endoscopy does not rule out a GI source of chest pain. There are other tests such as esophageal manometry that could be performed to seek an answer. Non cardiac chest pain can be many things, including costochondritis as others have mentioned. But i don't think you had a fully negative GI workup with just an endoscopy. ...Read more

Constipation: For chronic constipation a diet containing fiber(either through food or Metamucil like supplement) and good daily intake of fluid is essential. Exercise helps.

Nausea worst in mornings, lingers but not as bad all day. Sensitive to smells. Tired all the time. Gastroenterology tests detect nothing.NOT PREGNANT.

You're sure - right?: Well, if you are definitely not pregnant this might reflect a situation that creates these common early pregnancy symptoms. I'd suggest a full OBGYN exam to find what is acting in some respects like pregnancy. Hopefully, an OBGYN here will give advice too. But it's worth a good exam to find out. Best! ...Read more

Gastroenterology: Does an endoscopic ultrasound of the pancreas usually require general anesthesia of the patient or can there be twilight sleep?

Gastroenterology: Does an endoscopic ultrasound of the pancreas usually require general anesthesia of the patient or can there be twilight sleep?

Outside my area!: I'm not an expert on this - but, even if I had a knowledgeable POV - it would mean nothing for your case. The medical team responsible for your procedure will not be moved from the practices they are confident and comfortable with. Really, they're right to make choices they'll be responsible for. If you can find what you want, fine. If you fear GA, try to find help w/ this fear - you can! Best! ...Read more

Bad breath: The cavities and root tips are an obvious source of the bad breath. Any mouth problems should be dealt with first, cavities are rotting parts of teeth. If there is still a problem after the obvious then seek more obscure answer. ...Read more
