I am diagnosed with UC but my doctor has admitted that we have not done the proper testing to eliminate the posiblity of Chrons. Since I have had such a tough time getting into remission, last time I saw her, she mentioned doing further testing so we can get a clear answer. She said that my symptoms, biopsies, colonoscopies all point to UC and a pretty classic case but she also said it is possible that I am dealing with Chrons.
What tests have you had? She mentioned CAT scan to help diagnose, pill cam, endoscopy, a few others too... All I've had so far is colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy.
I do get symptoms I see people mention here like canker sores and throat cobbleing. I also had patchy inflammation. It is hard to tell if it is truly patchy when you're being treated because the medicine can treat some areas and miss others, especially if you're using rectal meds.
