Has Anyone Had A "non-specific" Sm Bowel Bioposy Result?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is my first post, but I've been reading the topics on this forum for several weeks now. I'm hoping someone may have had a similar sm bowel biopsy result as mine.

First, here's a bit of my history: I'm 39 and have been dealing with GI issues most of my life. I was diagnosed with IBS in my early-20s based upon my frequent diarrhea symptoms. For the most part, I was able to manage my IBS by taking psyllium husk w/acidophilus supplements twice a day. It never completely went away, but I just learned to live with the fact that I would always need to know where the nearest bathroom was located. :)

About 6 months ago, my IBS started to flare up more than usual. Then it suddenly got better, but I slowly started developing heartburn, chest pressure, gas and abdominal pains which seemed to get worse each week. I went to see my family doctor in Sept and he diagnosed me with GERD and gave me Kapidex (a new proton pump inhibitor) which did not help the heartburn. I have also tried taking Maalox, Zantac and Prilosec and even drinking baking soda in water. None of these antacids help the heartburn.

Next they ran several blood tests (CBC, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Lipase, H. Pylori, and T-Trans IGA & Total IgA Level), and I was sent for an abdominal ultrasound. My blood tests were all normal
