I hope the GP is right, but if you have symptoms and worries, now is the time to get a definitive answer. I would go to a doctor that specializes in that area (gastrointestinal?). I found with the course of my husband's disease that a GP doesn't really know enough, likes to play the wait and see game and often isn't willing to pass the ball on in a timely fashion to a specialist. You'll need to be your own self advocate. Hopefully a good doctor will put you through any needed diagnostic tests and if nothing else relieve your mind. Nancy
