Hi again hearty,
I know you posted in another thread that you feel an endoscopy cost too much for what results it will produce (they will just put you on same meds anyhow), but if you are having severe cramps and diarrhea from eating it could be something more than just GERD. Just a few possibilities: (I'm not a doctor..so i bet there could me many more possibilities than these) IBS, colitis related (of which severe cramping and diarrhea and or constipation is a symptom) or as you said...scar tissue related, which can cause intestinal and or bowel spasms. There are different meds for for each of these conidtions, including spasms. This is just a thought of mine because I suffer with the severe cramping and diarrhea (other times its constipation) and I have IBS, intestinal, bowel and bladder spasms. It doesnt mean you do have something else, but why chance it? These conditions aren't diagnosed via the endoscopy though...but by a different scope and of course I cant remember what the name of that one is. If you find out what the symptoms are caused by, then you can learn to control them...and of course our little HW family will be more than happy to offer advice, suggestions and of course support. Would your doctor be open to listen to these thoughts? I sure hope I helped and didnt come across as preachy. Just concerned for you. Hope you are having a great day.
