Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Disorders (EGID) are growing in prevalence in the world...
The symptoms of these disorders are familiar ones that are the same as many other GI problems...
EE Eosinophilic Esophagitis is inflammation in the esophagus. It will cause symptoms of choking, food getting stuck, vomitting...
EG Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis affects the stomach and small intestine... Such symptoms as diverse or specific GI pain, vomitting, diareah, constipation, nausea, feeling full after eating a partial meal, bloating...
EC is in the Colon and all the above symtpoms apply...

Eosinophils are normal in our bodies, but not in the amounts seen in eosinophilic disease... This disease may be an allergic reaction that does not show on allergy tests, or Idiopathic.

To start your search to see if this might be your problem go to APFED.Org and check out many links from there...
Without numerous biopsies this disease can be missed...

Good luck and I hope that this may provide an answer for some of you who are suffering...
