Cold Symptoms After Esophegeal Manometry and Ph Impedance Test?

Posted by jackiem95 @jackiem95, Mar 16, 2019

Has anyone else had cold symptoms—constant sinus drainage/headache, cough etc after having an esophegeal manometry and ph Impedance tests where they put the catheters up through your nose, down your throat and into the esophagus? After several days My sinuses are constantly draining and nose running and not just a little—plus a cough and lots of sneezing. When I had the catheter removed, the technician didn’t Seem concerned—said that they put a lidocaine gel in the nose with a syringe before the test test and it gets pushed into the sinuses. I really feel like I have gotten a cold somehow.

Hi @jackiem95 that sounds frustrating.

I wanted to introduce you to fellow Connect member @kozlo52 as they have mentioned getting an esophegeal manometry before and may have experienced something similar.

Back to you, @jackiem95 did you show any cold symptoms prior to your tests?

Not really. I did have a small amount of occasional “drip” from one nostril—the sort of thing I sometimes get from seasonal allergies.
