I was just told that there wasn't any polyps. I just had this done on January 30th, and my other smyptoms are pain and burning under the ribs, heart burn with a sore throat. I have had periods of chills and nerve tingling on ocassion on all different parts of my body.

An H.pylori infection can cause Gastritis resulting in heart burn and burning pain under ribs . Sore throat can be due to inflammation of pharynx . ? ?Viral pharyngitis .

Also tingling sensation you describe can be due to peripheral neuropathy .Peripheral neuropathy is a term used to describe disorders of your peripheral nervous system. Your peripheral nervous system includes nerves in your face, arms, legs, torso, and some nerves in your skull .Peripheral neuropathy often affects people with diabetes and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Certain vitamin deficiencies, some medications and alcoholism can also damage Peripheral nerves .

This needs further evaluation by your physician .

Healthy bowel motions are brown . Light-coloured faeces usually means that bile salts are absent .
