what is wrong with me?
i've had symptoms of D and burning abd pain for 18 months, as well as fissures that come and go.
a ct scan showed colon/ti thickening typically associated with crohns.
crp was elevated.
2 c-scopes. one negative (while on roids), the other with "mild non-specific inflammation".
pill cam - negative (done 3 weeks after roid taper)
promethius serology - negative (at start of sx 18 mths ago)
the symptoms have steadily been coming back over last 3 months since finishing the 9 weeks of pred. slowly, but steadily and with night sweats and fatigue, and they are seeming to slowly crescendo, as they did last fall.
i know ive got it. the fissures, ct scan, and high crp dont lie. gi doc thinks i probably have it too, hasn't really suggested a next step though.
im taking probiotics and fish-oil, wanting to start asacol or roids again!
its hard to know what to do next. . . just wait until i start pooping blood or obstruct? ugh.. . the way things are going, that doesnt seem far off. anyone with similar experience? advice?
