Hi all - I had my colonoscopy and an EGD today, both of which were clear; but by dr said there is still some concern for Crohns, mainly because of the vomiting and my family history (brother with UC) - he said the vomiting is NOT related to IBS, and that Crohn's can be "sneaky", so he has ordered a small bowel x-ray of some sort for next Friday (they said I would probably have to eat some oatmeal or something w/ some contrast in it - ??)  I do have some other worrisome symptoms:  joint pain, mainly in shoulders, knees, and lower back; mouth ulcers which I've had as long as I can remember; and I my have a skin tag - I haven't discussed it w/ the dr. yet, but from descriptions I've read, sounds much like one.  I thank all of you again for your words of experience and encouragement.  I know that whatever comes, it's all in God's hands anyway, so I'm doing my best to have a spirit of faith and not a spirit of fear!  I will keep you posted.

Hi Miss. Sounds good that your Dr. is keeping on top of things and tell him about your tags and mouth sores are also a part of CD as well as many of us have lower back and joint pain. I feel your doing the right thing by getting tested.Do you have the D and pains accociated with CD or oyher bowel problems? Hoping things work out good for you. lol gail

Most definately have the D and extreme cramping - along with spontaneous vomiting during the most painful episodes (no preceeding nausea, just suddenly vomit while also in the process of the "other") - it may be IBS, but I have a brother who had UC and had an ileostomy at age 22, so I HAVE to check it all out.  Thanks for your reply - I appreciate ALL input and insight!
