My doctors have told me that it is not too unusual to have Crohn's and Lupus as they are both AI diseases. After years of abdominal pain my crohn's was finally diagnosed with a pill cam. I had inflamation and ulcers in my entire upper intestine. They will not be able to see your upper GI with the colonoscopy so even if you have that done you should make sure to have the pill cam too. I hope this is not what you have but I wanted you to know because I could have saved myself years of pain had I known that I needed that test.
Rosie...I am happy to hear that you are feeling a little better, hope you are even better by morning!!!!
