I went through 8 months of testing last year for abd pain, wt loss, joint pain and extreme fatigue with the only pos. results being a pos. Promethius test and a low Vit D level. My abd pain became much better with the use of some natural remedies but my joint pain never went away. My stomach pain has now come back for the last 3 months --- so here I go again on the round of MDs and testing. I had an EGD and Colon last week that showed severe gastritis in stomach and duodenum with ulcers. No H Pylori. My vit D level is less than it was last year (less than 5) this year even though I take daily suppliments. Also "moderate bulboduodenitis" I have always suspected I had Crohn's because my symptoms pretty much fit and I have a brother and an uncle with it. I have yet to see my GI after all of this to see what she makes of it. With no H Pylori and no NSAID use, what else could it be?
Awaiting official diagnosis....... maybe Chron's, Lupus, RA nobody know yet.

Beloved, Think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you, But rejoice in as much as yea are partakers of Christ's sufferings: that when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. I Peter 4:12-13
