Focally active ileitis?

Hi, I am a 20 year old female who has struggled with diarrhea and stomach pain for as long as I can remember. I have treated it with a very clean diet since my GI Doctor can't find anything visibly wrong. I do have gastroparesis. I have recently lost 15 pounds that I didn't have to lose and did a repeat colonoscopy which showed reactive gastropathy in my stomach in focally active ileitis. Everything appeared normal on the colonoscopy except for the abnormalities in the biopsies. My GI Doctor just keeps talking about stress, but I am not stressed and stress does not cause ileitis. Does anyone have any advice? Could this be early IBD or something? I'm sick of not having energy and having so much stomach pain/diarrhea.

I've had endoscopy, colonoscopy, normal CT, gastric emptying test showed gastroparesis.

You might want to ask for a fecal calprotectin
