Endoscopy for the esophagus is really an easy thing to go thru. You could possibly have a little sore throat after but I have had 4 of them and not had any pain or discomfort. Are they giving you a little medication to relax you? If they are you should just wake up without any complications. Hope you do well. Take good care,View Thread
I promise you that if you had Crohn's disease,like I do, you would not even want to think of that diagnosis. You can have mild to severe symptoms of persistent diarrhea, pain, abdominal cramps, fever and fatigue. Most of the time you have rectal bleeding with diarrhea. Maybe you need to start eating smaller meals more frequently to keep your stomach less full. You really should go to a GI doctor as soon as possible. Hope you find the answers that you are searching for. Take good care,View Thread
Veggies will make you blow up, they are very gassy. Have you ever tried to take Alkaseltzer? or something like GasX? Have you gone to a GI doctor? They might want to scope you and see if there is anything going on with your stomach. They also might want to do a CT scan on you to see if there is any inflammation. Why don't you try a different tact to the diet plan. Try calorie counting and smaller portions more often. Alot of people find this much better than sacrificing as much as you do on a restrictive diet. Do you normally have problems when you eat sugar and milk? Other than that I don't have any ideas for you. Hope you find the answers that you are looking for. Take good care,View Thread
Since no one can really be diagnosed over the internet and it is also WebMD poilcy that we not give a diagnosis all I can say is that you need to go see a good GI doctor. There are a number of diagnosis for chronic diarrhea.
You might want to use the WebMD symptom checker to help you solve your problem. Another thing you might want to do is to start a food diary and see if you have foods that might trigger your symptoms.
I hope that you find the answers you are searching for.

So sorry your daughter is suffering so much. Welcome to our community, please come back often.
The problem is that Crohn's is such a tricky thing to diagnose. Many people don't get diagnosed for years and some, like me, hit the jackpot and was diagnosed with the first colonoscopy during my first flare. For some reason children seem so hard to get a quick diagnosis without family history of Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis or IBS and you might go through several GI doctors.
You might want to start a food diary and keep track for the foods that might increase her pain.
I hope that she gets better quickly and you can find a diagnosis. Hope you find the answers you are looking for.

I was told when I first started on WebMD that we were not allowed to give diagnoses because we were not physicians.
That being said, normal bowel movements do not cause dehydration and IBS should not cause dizziness. Vagal nerve response might be the problem but you should talk to your physician about the dizziness.
There are many diagnoses that you can have with the symptom of dizziness and some of them are not nice and can be caused by increased intracranial pressure when staining.
Please see your doctor. Hope you find the answers you are seaching.
Welcome to our digestive disorder community! So sorry that you are not getting the types of answers you are looking for. Even though it is against WebMD policy to diagnos, since we are not physicians, we can help with our personal experience.
Colitis, whether is be Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Colitis, Diverticulitis.....etc.... is a very hard to pin point exactly what your diagnosis really is. It takes, sometimes, years to get a good diagnosis of IBS or IBD.'
Have you ever tried to keep a detailed food diary to make sure you are not being put into pain by something you have eaten.
At the height of your illness you should be scoped to see what is there when you are hurting. Be able to talk to your doctor by going to your appointment very well informed. So, google, google, google! And also be prepared to seek a new physician if you do not get along with him. You should both have the same plan of care in mind for how he will help you get better.
I really hope that you find the answers you are looking for and that you get relief. I pray for relief for you.
I think that you need to ask tha question to your phyician. If you have had pancreatitis I don't know if it will come back easier. But you cannot be diagnosed over the internet since we are not physicians and it is also against WebMD policy.
Have you googled with question about pancretitis? I hope you find all of the answers that you are looking for.
