I read a post you had about you having crohns colitis.  Is that the same as crohns colitis overlap?  Do you know? I just posted a thread asking this to others.  I read its rare to have both so now I wonder if I have the same as you.  I am confused and may have misunderstood my doctors explanation but am sure he said I have crohns/colitis overlap....ugh.  I am so lost some day!
Thanks for you help!

No, it's simply crohn's disease affecting the colon, I don't have both UC and CD I only have CD (which is currently for the last 18 yrs been affecting my colon)...I would assume that crohn's colitis overlap might mean that you're in the unfortunate 2% of patients that have both UC and CD but I'm not 100% sure on that. Like I said in the other post though, the good thing is that the same meds are used to treat UC as used to treat crohn's colitis. I would definitely ask your doc to elaborate on his DX of the crohn's/colitis overlap though.

Feel better soon :)
