From my understanding folic acid/b-12 dif (and vit D), and thyriod problems are common for those with long flaring IBD, usually more common with crohns. Have you had any unexplain weight gain and fatigue lately or should I say constantly? (granted I developed lupus at the same time so that does effect my perception of the problem a bit). I had lost the feeling in my pinkie and ring finger and my feet felt constantly asleep.
Good Luck with your tests,
