Hi, Dar.

Taking caffeine, when trying to resolve things like LGS (which has to be present for you to have what you have) is like pouring gasoline on a fire you are trying to put out.

Endoscopy has only a little risk (perforation of the esophagus) and so you can have it as often as you think you can tolerate it and your doc will DO it.

Of course, it is a diagnostic procedure and does nothing about treating it or curing the causes.

Walt
