Started after being put on seroquel. Dicussed in length that some medication may have a paradoxical effect on me.

Endoscopy shows mild inflammation with ulcers, more.
Colonoscopy shows "strips" in the terminal lieum. No inflammation as seen then? Colomoscopy, all nerves were shot!?
Treating with Valium .5 mg, joke.
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!
