Endoscopy shows mild inflammation with ulcers, more.
Colonoscopy shows "strips" in the terminal lieum. No inflammation as seen then? Colomoscopy, all nerves were shot!?

Take 6-8 every couple hours and still does not control symptoms. Dr office will NOT return calls!
Don't want to keep living like this at my age, not quality of life!
