    Just received my Biopsy report today. Had some questions.

    I had an upper endoscopy the other day and received my biopsy report. My insurance required me to have that procedure done so I could get authorization for a pill cam. I'm in the process of figuring out what's going on with some lower gastro issues I've been having. With the symptoms I've been experiencing, my doctor is leaning towards the possibility of crohn's disease. I don't have any issues with heart burn or the other symptoms that come with GERD and I don't use NSAIDS....
  • GERD/Acid Reflux Peoples.....

    Has anyone ever experienced coughing up clear phlegm (for me, it's mostly in the morning, but not always) ? I've kind of chronically been coughing for probably 5 or 6 months now. I've been to the doctor about it once.....she thought it might be acid reflux or asthma. I've never smoked. I do drink. Any one else have this problem? I've also been on acid reflux meds for ~10 years now.

    Acid Reflux type symptoms Palm and Peanut Oil

    Over a year ago I suddenly started having issues with my throat feeling like it was squeezing and sort of burning. I had drunk the night before and had a bit of a hang over to. The doctors kept saying acid re-flux but the medication would only make it worse. Eventually it was discovered I had a lot of stones in my gal bladder and it was removed. But I was still having the throat issues. Over time I narrowed down the food that causes the issues to Palm and Peanut oil. Such as chicken from chic-fil....

    Abdominal CT Scan ulcers

    I have been having digestive issues for a few months now. It started when I began taking multivitamins (that I didn’t know had iron in them) in addition to iron supplements I was taking for anemia. In that period I had frequent diarrhea, black stools, and bloating. These all improved when I stopped taking iron and the vitamins, but the soft stools (no on her black), diarrhea, have continued, but now I also throw up at night sometimes . I went to the doctor, and they did a ct scan with barium and....

    IBS?

    I started my journey with what seems to be IBS. I’ve gotten all the test done from CAT scans to ultrasounds to blood work and even an endoscopy and they say my pain is stress related. I’m suffering from stomach pains and digestive issues. Some days I’m constipated and days like today I have diarrhea. I get very anxious extremely easily for everything and I don’t know how to calm myself. I’ve tried it all and it’s not helping. I’m losing so much weight because I’m scared to eat. And I have school....

    What could this possibly be? PLEASE read/help

    I have a really long story & complicated medical history, but I'm going to keep things short & to the point as to not turn people away. I am so desperate for an answer. I'm a 25 year old female who has been having a myriad of gastrointestinal issues for the last almost two years. During the summer of 2016 I had my first bout with severe diarrhea, which I honestly thought originated from food poisoning. Obviously this was not the case as this symptom and (new ones to follow) has become....

    Are 2 week old cooked fish

    I ate a 2 week-old cooked battered fish believing it was only a couple of days old. It was refrigerated and tasted fine. Will I likely have stomach issues, and how long should I wait to consider myself in the clear?
  • Stomach pain past 6 months on and off

    Hi! So, every once and a while it is completely random I will get this pain in my stomach. It is to the right of my belly button right outside of where my abs would end. So the Middle section of the right side of my stomach. The pain is very random, I will notice a weird tight feeling where it is and then if I even go to scratch my stomach or something I will feel like I am getting stabbed with a knife in that spot. I do feel a little bump when I push around which does hurt alot and then after I....
