I first had symtoms of rectal bleeding and loose sttols starting about three months ago. After my physician removed all regular diagnosis, he passed me onto a GI, who immediately ordered a colonoscopy on March 25th. After seeing inflammation in colon (ring like and not continuous), my GI diagnosed colitis (probable crohn's) and started treating me with 2.4 g of Lialda. He then ordered some more blood work (ESD)that he said is more consistent with Crohn's. He then sent my bloodwork to Promoetheus- Serology 7 test. On meeting him today, he says that the test came back confirming IBD, but saying I have UC and not Crohn's. Also, since 25 days on Lialda seems to have cured my blood in the stools that may be I do have UC. Further, lack of any penetrating pain in abdomen also points more to UC than Crohn's. So for now he is recommending continuation on Lialda. Meanwhile, I'm still wondering whether I have Crohn's or UC?
Any advice to further my diagnosis or your personal experiences would be helpful? Thanks
