I have been having symptoms of gas, right side pain, bloating, shooting pain in bottom, joint pain, canker sores in mouth etc for the past 6 weeks (have had these episodes on and off for over 3 years). Some symptoms have subsided, and it has taken me this long to get into a gastroenterologist (appointment December 15). My question is if my symptoms go completely away will a colonsocopy still show something if I have something?
I have been going through weird flare ups for over 3 years but this is the worst flare up I have had. I have seen many many doctors but never a gastroenterologist. The rheumatologist wanted to refer me last year but I was afraid of a colonoscopy so I didn't go. Now I am tired of this mess and I want a diagnosis.
