My 7 y.o. has been through quite a bit of testing this year. She just had a pill camera done a couple weeks ago which showed polyps in her small intestine. She also has, esophagitis, gastritis, colitis, pancreatitis. Can all of this be d/t lyme..........mainly the polyps????????

Yes, all of this could be due to Lyme. Has she been tested for Celiac Disease? I ask because Celiac Disease can also cause these things (the -itis throughout the gut, polyps, etc.).
Chronic Lyme Disease, Gluten & Sulfite Sensitivity, Many Food/Inhalant/Medication Allergies & Intolerances, Asthma, Gut issues (dysmotility, non-specific inflammation), UCTD ("Secondary Lupus-Like Syndrome"), Osteoporosis, Anemia, Lymphopenia, intermittant Pancytopenia, chronic malabsorption/malnutrition, etc.; G Tube; Currently TPN-dependent.
Meds:  Zofran, Pulmicort, Heparin (to flush PICC line), IV Cipro (for G-tube site infection).
