I have been to 4 primary care, currently just saw a GI specialist and Rhuematologist. What worries me is I’m only 34 years old a mother of 3( 16-8-8months) with problems I shouldn’t be having until after 50. My spine has signs of DDD and as my rheumatologist has said I’m too young to show those types of changes it’s just hard to narrow down what auto immune could be causing such problems as my blood work besides lipase is perfect. I used to be able to push through the pain but it’s getting very hard to juggle life kids and the pain/symptoms
