Hey All,   Went to day for the fun endoscopy...  My gastro said she found gastritis and that was it..  She did take biopsies of the small intestine to check for h-pylori and sprue...I feel like crap..  Those test always kill me...  So again another test and no answers!!!!  Oh well..  On to the next test...  Hope all is well with everyone...

Hi ryleigh,
The endoscopy is very limited as the farthest it can travel is the very beginning of the small bowel. Its good that she did take biopsies though and very happy for you that she didn't see any esophagal damage. Did she give you anything to treat the gastritis? I know how frustrating it is going through all the tests but I hope that you can find some relief soon. Take it easy for a couple days after your scope, my throat was a tad sore afterwards. Take Care and let us know what happens.
Hugs, Des
