i have gotten done my endoscopy & colonoscopy. Endoscopy says - mouth Ulcers,mild oesophigitis, mild duodinitis & Colonoscopy says - fissure, 1st degree haemoerroid, rectal ulcer (solitary), a tiny ileal ulcer with erosions & the biopsy (as the doctor suspected crohn's) report is negative for crohn's.My ESR is also normal.The Gastro has ruled out any possibility of crohn's.He said that there is a slight inflammation & also some worms so he had put me on ZENTEL for 3 days & Pantadac DSR for a month.i want to clarify that i do not have any skin disorders, arthritis.

I'm worried because there is a very mild consistent pain in my lower abdomen (right side), i always feel that evacuation is not complete (i do not have diarrhea or constipation), there is itching sensation around anus.

though the doctor has ruled out any possibility but then i just wanted to know is Crohn's possible even without diarrhea or acute pain in the adbomen....etc....and generally wht is the time period between Flare ups & remmissions.

Also, is it hard to live it, as they say there is no cure for crohn's


Thanks in advance,

RSP

RSP, Yes, people can have Crohn's without having diarrhea...many of us actually have constipation most of the time.  I have always had a lot of pain and arthritis problems at an early age, but diagnosis took a long time since I didn't have the "typical" symptoms.  My GI said he's seen patients with Crohn's who have absolutely no gut symptoms...they discover the Crohn's when trying to figure out what's causing the arthritis, or something else. 

Time between flare-ups and remission is different for everyone and different every time.  I was in remission for 4 years and think I have just started to flare.  My last flare last several months.  Some people never go into remission and other people stay in remission for many, many years. 

You are correct that there is no cure and whether or not it is hard to live with depends on the severity of the disease and the individual person.  I know of some people with it that don't even need to take meds or adjust their diet because theirs is extrememly mild.  Others can't work or function normally because theirs is so severe.  Many people (like me) are somewhere in between where we have to take meds and watch what we eat and there are times where we can work and do many things that "normal" people can do, and other times where we can't do anything.

I hope that your dr figures out what is going on with you soon!     


Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)

it sounds like it might be crohn's since you are describing skip lesions. what were the pathologist findings (did they see a granuloma?). it's interesting that you say you have worms (which is a huge topic now about how they can PREVENT IBD). The fact that you have itching seems to suggest pinworms though.

Thanks for the reply!

HISTOPATHOLOGY IMPRESSION:

Microscopic Description:

Section of biopsy’s tissue shows small intestinal mucosa with papillary mucosal folds. There are dense lined by columnar epithelium with goblet cells. There are multiple lymphoid follicles with germinal centre formation and patchy lymphoplasmocytic infiltration in the lamina propriya.

Impression:
Features are suggestive of lymphoid follicular hyperplasia, small intestine.


Initially he doubted for a remote chances of Crohn's, this was ruled out after Histopathology Pathology Examination, the Gastro has concluded that everything is normal except for the presence of ulcer.

First of all i want to thank tsitodawg for answering my query.
 
i did not mean to offend anyone, I've seen around 5 doctors (GI) so far everyone had said the same thing that the problem i'm facing is of some parasites (not mentioned the type). since the things are not settling in i'm worried of misdiagnosis.
 
trust everyone understands my state of mind.
 
 
my grand father (doctor) used to say that an old patient is always better than a new doctor.

Dear tsitodawg thank you for giving me courage, more than physical i am more down on the emotional front.really do not know how long will it take for me to heal it's already been 9 months now.amoebiosis is what the GI is suspecting. He too says it will take some time to recover. confused Presently i'm on Riboflavin - vitamin supplement & probiotic daily once.

Thanks once again tsitodawg I've a very small & quick query you said "The side effects are probably the closest thing to Crohn's disease that I have seen other than the actual disease". Do you mean to say that amoebiosis if not attented might lead to Crohn's ?

Yes I do live in 3rd world country, thank you for clarifying again, inspite of so many people telling me the crohn's thing is just not getting out of my mind. The GI also said the same as you have mentined (why he thought of remote possibility of the disease). how long will it take to get rid of this parasites completely. confused sad .

I totally understand the fact why you have asked whether i'm from third world country, basically i'm from India. But i believe the health system is very advanced than most of the developed countries.
coming back to my story i've been suffering for the past 8 - 9 months. Initially the doctors after doing all the tests like CBP, CRP, CT Scan, X -rays etc had confirmed that I had nothing & D was due to anxiety. I was put on some anti anxiety medications, after 2 - 3 months i stopped using those drugs. I was not convinced with my GP & GI so I requested my GI to get the Endoscopy done (both Upper & lower - colonoscopy). The observations which i posted earlier was the result of the same, when he saw a tiny ulcer & erosions around it in the ileum he suspected that there would be a remote chances of Crohn's later the biopsy has ruled out that then the GI concluded that all the suffering is due to some parasites (amoebiosis). I believe homeopathy has a very good treatment for parasites, ulcers, haemmoroids planning to switch completely to Homeo. Presently i'm only on Vitamin B 12 supplement.
 
My worry is as mentioned earlier, i still have a mild pain in my lower abdomen right side, my stomach most of the times is upset (the Gi is saying this is because of the parasites), there is no D or C, but i always have the feeling of going to the wash room all through the day. I've done a lot of research on web in regards to Crohn's (which I feel I shud'nt have done it). whatver symptoms I get I started linking it the Disease. Hence confused   sad   
 
 
Thanks a lot!

Thank you for the reply, i've been away. As you have mentioned, I hope that the doc is on the right track. Sometimes i feel everything is alright except for the problem of parasites but at times feel that s'thing is really wrong & somehow the Crohn's thing is just not getting out of my mind more so because of the difficulty in diagnosing the disease.
 
May GOD BLESS ALL.
