i actually went to the doctor again today to do a barium test or whatever...drank some white stuff and they xrayed my stomach and what not...im suppose to find out about it in a couple days...another thing my docotor told me that there is a medicine out that can block the pain messengers from going to spinal cord up to my brain so the pain isnt as bad...but to me...thats a cover up...i was fine 2 years ago so obviously this is something that can be fixed...i dont wanna just cover up the pain..
