The flake incident

I feel terrible. It's 4:30 am and I've just had a rigid nasal endoscopy.
Last night, while I was eating my oat cereals, I sneezed and instantly it crossed my mind that a flake might have got stuck inside my nose.
Naturally I started to actually feel the flake obstructing my airways, scratching away at my sinuses.
I tried to sneeze it out and poured gallons of saline solution in my nose but to no avail. The imaginary flake was still there.
The visit at the ER proved there was nothing but my imagination. The endoscope, a long metal stick with a camera on top, that was inserted inside my nose, didn't detect anything. I don't know what hurt most: the stingy anesthetic or the thingy advancing towards my brains.
And I don't know what is worse now, the thought of the non-existent flake or the sci fi adventure of the metal blade to the center of my head.
I know things can change unexpectedly. But come on! To make a mountain out of a mole hill, and totally alter the course of what should have been a quiet day with your bare hands, because of a flake?! It sounds like staying on the rails when train's coming, for fear you might scratch your elbow if you rushed to safety.
The funny part is, I did this in a noble state of mind: better be safe than sorry policy...But now it feels more like, better be stubborn-silly than at home sleeping with your nose in one piece...
PS: the crazy thing to do right now is ask for a second opinion. Maybe the flake was hiding from the endoscope
