UPDATE to everyone. I went and saw a female GI! She is wonderful so far. She listened, explained and talked.
I am set up for another endoscopy next thursday. Been over a year since last one. She's very concerned. And told my even if they dont find anything they will send me most likely next to a immunologist dr to see why my IGG and IGA antibodies are so high for chrons even if they cant find anything. She know I live in pain when I eat and body will not absore food because the little Ido eat I keep losing weight in under 2 weeks I went from a steady 115pd down to 107pds and keep dropping. Now I havent had a period for 2 months but I know things go hand in hand when you get sick.
Keep me in you prayers please. Working on 4 years of suffering and no answers. My biggest pain is the fact being a single mom, I am missing out on so much quality time with my children because I go to work and come home and live on phenegran. That hurts me more then anything. It's time I'll never get back with them..
Illl keep you all updated. THANK YOU!!!!!rolleyes

I can't imagine being a single mom and living like you are...I'm glad the Dr seems to be taking a no nonsense attitude about what's going on! You need some answers! Nothings worse than being a mom and knowing you want to do more for your kids and your sick!
Your in my thoughts and prayers!
