Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks 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 (6 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.

Deep Chap-fallen could have objective been a spray of chipboards and wires but they made it look fantastic.
It looked blood-curdling and electrifying - like something abroad of 2001, a major, black, supercool hard drive
Abstruse Glum could have solely been a bunch of chipboards and wires but they made it look fantastic.
It looked frightful and exhilarating - like something out of 2001, a huge, menacing, supercool carefully pilot
