You know this board has taught me more about this disease then many conversations with many doctors.  Because of you all last year I knew my original diagnosis of UC was incorrect as I had to many things going on that don't happen with UC patients.  Because of what I learned from you all, I asked better questions, switched doctors multiple times until I found one that knew this disease and could treat it aggressively.  Unfortunately due to insurance I had to stop going to my amazing doctor.  While the new doc is good, I was still a little concerned with how excessively tired I have been.  So I asked, thanks to knowledge gained by these boards, for him to check my B12 levels and iron levels.  What do you know,  I need B12 injections!  Thanks guys and keep discussing all the issues, even if they are gross because you are helping someone!

Yes, but scary or slack that he hadn't thought to check them as part of your care in managing your Crohn's disease.
Glad to hear your feeling better with the shots.
take care,

Thank you so much for the positive feedback and taking the time to tell us, want-2-be-well! It's good to know that our forum been of benefit to you. Yesterday, someone posted that her doctor gave her this forum's URL because he thought we could help her. Again, that's for the report and kind words.
