Hi, my brother had an endoscopy done the other day

Hi, my brother had an endoscopy done the other day and they saw several white spots in his stomach (they took 5 separate biopsies). What could the white spots indicate or suggest? I’ve never heard of them before and waiting for the answers from his medical team is killing me.

In terms of history, My brother turned 48 yrs old 29OCT18, smokes, drinks, and previously had difficulties with substance abuse. He’s also been diagnosed bi-polar schizophrenic. He certainly struggles with his disease, but still is high-functioning.

Any insight you could provide on the white spots would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Hi, I had an endoscopy Tuesday. The next day I had a stiff neck , which has only gotten worse. The back of my head also hurts, and the pain has moved in my neck from one side to the other. I have very little range of motion . I attributed this to the fact that I fell asleep sitting up in bed after the procedure, but am worried that it could be something else.

Hi I have been experiencing heart palps for the last 8 months accompanied by stomach problems. I am on lansoprazol 30mg twice a day since feb this year. I am worried about these palps. They can be very infrequent. Can have them on and off all day or go 3 weeks without any. I am having an endoscopy soon to investigate my stomach problems. Docs say heart palps are ectopic and harmless. Some can be ver mild whilst others feel like a huge thud in my chest . I am a 27 year old female. Looking forward to hearing from you.
