There's a new line of thinking in the GI research community that UC, Crohn's and some other types of colitis may be a continuum of diseases of the same spectrum. In other words, much more alike than previously suspected. I know a lot of people on the UC forum who have started out with a UC diagnosis and it's been changed to Crohn's. There are also some who have gone the other way - from UC to Crohn's. Apparently it can be tricky to differentiate between the two.
At this point, you're receiving treatment that would address either problem, so I hope you're soon feeling better.
