Our nine year old son has been ill for about a year. It started with motor tics and then stomach pain. The stomach pain became severe and then he began to have bright red blood in diarrhea. In October, we eliminated gluten and dairy from his diet. The diarrhea stopped and stomach pain improved. He then began to have pain after eating other foods, so one at a time we eliminated eggs, soy, nuts, beef, and pork. By February, he had severe reflux and esophagitis and was diagnosed with EoE. After a repeat endscopy, his GI doc said his eosinophil count is normal. Unfortunately, he continues to have reflux, stomach pain, throat pain and a persistent low grade fever. He is now also complaining of chest pain, is lethargic, and occasionally his legs hurt. He has lost about nine pounds in the past three months.
Thanks for any ideas you have.
