I see. My situation is that I have been having some throat pain. I did a gastroscopy recently which found everything was normal but I still feel weird throat sensation. Do you have any idea why that might be?
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 9 days ago

This is likely to be due to anxiety.

I can assure you, there is nothing worrisome.

It is privilege assisting you.
