This is my first time on here and I have not been officially diagnosed with Crohn's. I have had episcleritis of the eye for about 5 months now--been using different corticosteriod drops now and that clears it up but it comes right back when I quit. I have seen different Opthamologists and I finally went to see a new Internist who said that episcleritis is very common with Crohn's. I have also had some other symptoms as well--I get bad diarrhea off and on, flatulence, acid relfux, nauseau that comes and goes, weird mouth sores that last for about a week or longer. Sometimes (like yesterday) I get really bad anal pain that comes and goes. I have bled from there before as well.
Anyhow, Friday I get to have an upper endoscopy and a colonoscopy. I am so scared! Maybe I am just wimp but I really am scared! I am scared it will hurt and I am scared of what they might find!
Anyone else had or have any of the above symptoms or fears?
Oh my bloodwork all came back normal. But I guess that can be normal even with Crohn's?
