Good evening to all,  got my blood tests back today,  they were both good.  The CRP and the Sed Rate were well within normal limits.   ok then, now what????  Pain still here, it does come and go.  Ear doc told me to take Aleve for the pain, it is an insaid, not supposed to do that am I???   To "IBeliveInMiracles", thanks for the info, I will check into the Behcet's Disease.  That may answer some more questions since I don't or ever have had some of the symptoms of Crohns.  They dx me by biopsy of lymph nodes that "suggested" Crohns and then the camera endoscopy.  Anyway,  I am on 75 of Imuran daily, would that mess with the results of the blood tests?  I just don't know where to turn now, guess I'll start with the family doc and let him see if he has any ideas.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks so much for being here!    Granna

Many times I have felt like utter crap and then had blood tests and they come back normal. A normal blood test does not always mean no flare. Hope the doc figures out whats going on with you.

I hate when that happens. You know you're sick, but you can't prove it to the doctor. I hope you get a diagnosis soon.

As the others posted, just because the blood work is good, doesn't mean every thing is fine.  I am in a similar situation.  All my blood work looks good, but I just don't feel as good as I did a year ago, at my last check up.  I don't want things to slide out of control.  As I am sure you don't.  Don't give up, keep pushing for answers.  You know something doesn't feel right, so make the doctor listen to you.

After a biopsy of lymph nodes and a camera endoscopy you are still doubting a Crohn's Dx?? Or you are suspecting something else in addition to?
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Thanks for ALL your replies. I do not doubt the dx of crohns, I believe there is something else going on. I plan to start (all over it seems) with the fam. doc. next week. See what his take is on this stuff. Then I have to call the GI doc for a visit, time for a check up with him. So.....for now, hurry up and wait right? I believe that is part of this life, huh?! Anyway, thanks again and I'll keep you all updated. Granna
