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!
