I have not had low B12 or shots. I do take Folic Acid daily but that’s prescribed to counteract the side effects of methotrexate.

“Cryptic distortion” to me sounds like a fancy pseudonym for “undetermined inflammation”, but I really don’t know what it means. Regardless of what the inflammation is, your goal here is to find a treatment that keeps it in check, ameliorates it or eliminates it. Nothing else really matters. Don’t lose sight of that goal. Your task here is not to solve medical riddles, it’s to get better and stay better.

Yes, your position is clear. Losing sight? Nope. But to some of us it does matter. And going into the weekend....and waiting weeks for the appointment....I'll take it. It's far better than what my GI speculated a year ago before subsequent tests of my full GI tract.....Expected to find evidence of Crohn's further up based on a pouch Crohn's like patch that appeared in the pouch.....and then disappeared with diet change/before any treatments. It was then said cobblestoning doesn't just disappear like that. So yes, I will take the small victories and be happy with it. It does not mean I am putting my head in the sand and losing sight of the goal.

Sometimes it really is OK to be happy with things not being worse, while going after what needs to be fixed. It's gratitude and hope.
