After my endoscopy I was told my esophagus and stomach looks mildly irritated, the doctors think I most likely have EE. I think the PPIs have healed most of the damage and I am Helicobacter pylori free. I get my biopsy results around next week or later, until then I’m going to follow an elimination diet. I’m going to stop eating things (or at least try to) with cow’s milk, soy, wheat, egg, peanut, tree nuts, fish, beef, chicken, oats, potato, corn, and shellfish; hopefully I will feel some relief.
Here is a medical journal I read and a few other sites that is giving me some insight.
I’m not 100% sure this is what’s wrong, but I’m desperate and I’ll try anything. I don’t want to mess this semester up. I already have to push my graduation date even further than before. I know people have allergies and are dealing with things way worse than this, I’m trying to suck it up as much as possible.
