our 10 year son has had multiple gi symptoms for the past 2 years from chronic diareha, chronic abdominal pain, weight loss and recently did a capsule endoscopy and they found prominent lymphoid hyperplasia in the small intestine. Blood work has steadily showed decreasing #neutrophils and that % also going down and now his wbc is low. His igG4 is elevated. Yet they say all blood work is ok. Ct scan last week has not been fully explained to me, it was of abdominal and pelvic area. One nurse read some of the report to me and it sound like they found some areas of question yet a second nurse with another doctor said it was a non specific findings and was considered normal. I am sure there is so much more that I am missing but there has been so much. He is scheduled early September for biopsies of the lymphoids, but I feel they are missing something. Does any one have any ideas. One more thing is that he often has leg pain and a few other bones hurt
