In brief: Fever abdominal pain

If EGD was 4 days ago call your doctor/ ER/urgent care NOW and state you are having post procedure pain and fever, could be from biopsy site ,microperforation, pancreatitis,bleed, sepsis or spasm. If EGD was a while ago can be H.
pylori, infection, gallbladder,pancreatitis, esophageal infection ( rarely candida). Ranitidine/carafate may help, but need to seek immediate medical attention.
