I was in for an EGD yesterday where they also took biopsies, and since the procedure my stomach has been cramping on and off. This has been making me not want to eat, and when my stomach cramps I feel like I am going to throw up.

I am sorry you are having this cramping after the EGD and stomach biopsy

yes, cramping is very common after biopsy

you should take some stomach acid reducing agents like omeprazole 40mg and zantac 150 mg to help decrease stomach acid

which can help you stomach calm down

you can try taking maalox, mylanta, pepto bismal which can help coat your stomach and help decrease nausea

ginger can help nausea as well.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
