Patient: I have recently noticed that when I eat I can feel the food going down, pain in chest and loose stool for 8 weeks. Dr has referred me for gastroscopy which is scheduled for next week. Appointment has come through very quick. Should I be worried

Talk to your Doctor to confirm that you have IBS and then work on making it better.Hope this helps. All the best.
