I had strongly positive ASCA antibodies about 5 years ago when I had a rare form of colitis they "said" was diverticular colitis. I had to have surgery and was symptoms free for about 4 years but now, I am having symptoms again. I don't even want to go in for all the darn testing again. I think I have crohn's in there somewhere. I have joint pain, fatigue, and occasional low grade fevers. My rheumatologist thinks they missed the crohn's somehow. I hear sometimes it can be hard to find unless it's pretty prominent in the biopsy.
