Anyone know anything about this? My latest test showed that I have it. I have to get another test to get a biopsy from it.

Sounds like this is what is happening??????

At times there will be inflammation of the duodenum rather than, or sometimes before, there is an ulcer. When there is inflammation of the tissue like this, it is called duodenitis. This type of inflammation can be caused by the bacteria infection, Helicobacter pylori and by arthritis and pain drugs such as aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Naprosyn and many others. Other more unusual conditions such as Crohn's disease can also cause inflammation

Ok. That puts me at ease a little. My mind just thinks the worst and I couldn't find much online about it. Thanks =)
