Hello all. Results of my EGD found "Mild Focal Chronic Peptic Duodenitis." Any idea what this mouthful means? Went in for testing after weeks of mild upper abdominal and back pain, excessive burping.

So the results of my colonoscopy/EGD came in. As far as my understanding, from reading the report, the only thing that they discovered was, "Mild Focal Chronic Peptic Duodenitis." I read into Duodenitis and understand that it is inflammation of the duodenum that is often caused by the bacteria H. Pylori. However, this test came back negative. Not sure what all of the other terms attached to "duodenitis" mean, but I will follow up with my GP to see what she says. Symptoms have remained the same, however the last two days or so they have been so mild, almost non-existent.
@hopeful33250 It went well. The doctor said everything looked normal but took samples for biopsy. Should know sometime next week and follow up with GP. Oddly enough, my symptoms subsided after I cleansed my bowel and hadn't eaten for over 24 hours, then returned the next day when I resumed eating as normal.
@hopeful33250 my GP just referred me to a GI for an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. She assured me that my blood work and urinalysis tests were all normal and that I did not need to worry about pancreatic issues (lipase and amylase levels were normal). I can't help but feel nervous because she doesn't know what to do for now and it could take time to see a GI specialist, however, I am trying to keep my hopes up because I tend to be very anxious about these sort of things.
