From this study (2 months ago):
Had 3 endoscopy and colonoscopy and all 3 similar even after treatment of prednisone. Got well for about 6 weeks and slowly all the symptoms are returning.
From this study (8 months ago):
Sick for over six weeks now with severe diarrhea and nausea on eating. Ordinary stool cultures negative. Special stool cultures (cryptosporidia, cyclospora, isosspora) all negative. Colonoscopy/endoscopy negative, including for microscopic colitis. Have not found any food tolerable. The more eaten, the worse the bouts (both severity and number). Any/all foods have same effect. BRATS diet did not work. Generous doses of Immodium + prescribed bowel relaxer mildly effective but result in greatly increased nausea. Doctors have no clue what is wrong.
