Question: Eosinophilic gastroenteritis? I just got released from the hospital after a terrible flare of so-called "IBS," (which I've had for years, but has recently worsened) in which I lost an additional 5 lbs in one week (making me officially underweight, which is new for me), suffered intractable abdominal pain, and became dehydrated from loss of fluids (diarrhea). They've done upper endoscopy, where they found: erosion of the esophagus, eosinophils, erosion of stomach and duodenum, duodenal diverticula, and stricture at esophageal juncture. Also possible inflammation and/or diverticula in the jejunam. Colonoscopy showed nothing, but biopsy results are not back. Capsule endoscopy of the entire small intestine has been done, but results are pending. What do you think? Eosinophilic gastroenteritis? IBD? Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome? Mast cell disease? Diverticulitis (of the small intestine)? Whatever it is, I keep having awful pain and diarrhea and am close to returning to the ER!

Answer: Only your doctor can answer that for you.
