Hi. I have been having some stomach issues. I am trying to figure out what it is. My gastro doctor gave me a blood test and she said the Markers were high for Crohns. She said it was 70 percent accurate and 30 percent not accurate.

I am trying to figure out what i have, I don't seem to have any of the symptoms for Crohns.

What tests are best to see if I have it?

* Colonoscopy
* Endoscopy
* Barium Swallow X-ray ( has anyone had this exam?)

If you have Crohns, Were you markers high on the blood test? How did you figure out that you have it?

I would love help to see if i have it or not.
