Change food first:
Most of the nerves that transmit pain are small fibers between the layers of your fascia. Fascia makes inflammatory chemicals in response to exposure to wheat and sugar. These may cause injury to the small fiber nerves. Stop your exposure to the 'do not eat' list and your body will work to heal itself with the energy and reserve you have left.

Further testing may be needed to determine if you have an actual stricture. Hope this helps. ...Read more
