Brief GI Update

I saw the GI doc. I like him and his nurse but not the way his office is run.
I don't seem to have lost weight. I came in at an even 100 lb. My blood pressure was 120/80. Since the only reason I'm not on an ACE inhibitor is that I've had a bunch of low blood pressure readings, and since the last few have been normal range, I'm wondering if I should start on one. I think not yet. I was in pain at the time so maybe the readings will drop back down if we successfully treat the pain.
The GI doc strongly suggested an upper endoscopy, which I scheduled for the 16th. He also suggested an MRI of my abdomen, which I'm holding off on for now.
