Regret inaccuracy: Your concern is understandable. Please note that some times it is not feasible to arrive at a definitive diagnosis in early stages of the illness. The good side to this circumstance is that you do not have severe disease. It would be prudent to pick one gastroentrologist and follow her/his advice as you need a consistent follow-up care. Wish you good health!
