Hi all! I am new here and was hoping to get some help from everyone suffering from Crohn's. I have been suffering from chronic diarrhea (that are sometimes black and tarry) everyday 3-6 times a day for over 5 years now. Rarely, do I get solid stool (maybe once or twice a month). In addition to my chronic diarrhea, I also suffer from constant bloating, abdominal cramps that can be severe, rashes on legs and thighs, eye sensitivity/pain (especially towards light), night sweats, and recently I have been having joint pain in my fingers, wrist, and shoulders.
I recently had a colonoscopy done a week and half ago and mild inflammation/erosion was found in the small intestine, some inflammation found in the colon, and diverculosis in my colon. My GI accused me of taking too much NSAIDS which I NEVER DO EVER!! They took two biopsies and said the biopsies came back showing no inflammation. Is it possible that I have Crohn's disease even though the biopsy doesn't show any inflammation?
Thank you to all who read this and are taking the time to respond. I am eager to feel better and just want some answers.
