Hi All! Thank you to those who responded to my last thread. I had my endoscopy today. My doctor is concerned about my esophagus and believes I may have Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). She also found several inflamed polyps on my upper intestine and stomach--those were biopsied and am awaiting results.

Has anyone experienced this with Crohn's / does this sound like something that would be found in someone who has Crohn's?

Hey Sarah,

I have ulceration in my stomach also, not sure if that's the same as polyps.. and I noticed that you have POTS, I have it too!! So weird. Do you mind me asking how old you are?

Hello!
I have yet to be diagnosed with anything specifically but am in the process of getting one. about 6 months ago I started experiencing my first (what I call) flare. Extreme stomach pain (right upper quadrant and abdominal--already got my gallbladder tested and it isn't that), nausea, diarrhea after eating anything (often beige / yellow in color with fine grounds or lots of mucous, black and tarry, or loose and watery with undigested food in it), upper right back pain, low grade fevers (99.4-100) usually at night, body aches and chills, severe exhaustion, and mouth sores that come and go.

Hey Sarah ,

Thanks for replying

I'm not the best with these forums and how to tag people

I get almost all of your symptoms too ... I've had 2 colonoscopies both when I was ill , one showed clearly I had crohns Colitis and the other showed nothing !

Are you in the U.K. ?
