Do you have extreme pain and/or bleeding? Do your docs suspect you may have an IBD? If so, yes, the camera pill is worth it. You also have to consider insurance... if you have insurance then absolutely try the camera pill. Usually, however, insurance will only cover the camera pill if you have already had a colonoscopy. Colonoscopies only see your large bowel and do not reach all of your small intestines. This is why the camera pill is so valuable; it will record your entire digestive process and detect any abnormality that may not have been found otherwise.
