hi, i was jut wondering if in early crohn's disease it takes a while to get an official diagnosis? i've had a lot of blood tests, a colonoscopy and gastroscopy and everything comes back sort of in the middle of normal and abnormal. my blood test results and the biopsies were not totally normal and my doctor thinks i have the start of early crohn's and my GI is 99.9% convinced i have crohn's. i've been on salofalk for nearly a year and the D seems to have calmed down as i haven't had in 2 months since doubling the dosage. Now it's gone the other way though and im straining to get my bowels moving and sometimes have to go to the bathroom 5-8 times a day just to get a little bit out! i kept thinking it's IBS but everyone else says otherwise!
