Has your doctor considered that your stomach pain is coming from Small Bowel Bacteria Buildup? Or maybe, more specifically, HPylori bacteria? I truly believe much of the stomach/upper abdominal pain that I get is due to this.
Just recently, I've been in a terrible flare...since January. Dropped 30 lbs. Stomach/Upper abdominal pains ALL THE TIME. D up to 10 times a day, plus overnight hours. Upper GI w/Small Bowel Follow Thru I had 2 weeks ago came back FINE. They put me on a low taper dose of Prednisone to help with the massive inflammation all over my body that I was having PLUS Flaygl, which helps with bacteria buildup, including HPylori (which I already know is in my bloodstream - once its there, it's ALWAYS there, whether active or not). I have not had much stomach/upper abdominal pain in a week now. Just finished the Flaygl yesterday.
Just a thought!
