I am a 16 year old male who has been sick since February. I got an eye infection in February and since then i have been having weird symptoms. I now have reynaulds my hands and feet go ice cold and turn pale. I have a low b12. I have had constant muscle pain. I am always tired and have unrefreshed sleep. I have been a having lower left quad stomach pain. Going to bathroom 2-3 times a day loose a lot of mucus and some streaks of blood. I had cat scan negative ultrsound negative. Today, i had a colonsocpy and they saw nothing but took biopsyies. I had a sed rate of 22 once and low ana but that all went down.I have had over 30 vials of blood taken to rule everything out Does anyone no wht this is??

Some kinds of bacterial infection can cause colitis. Have you been treated with good anti-biotics? Not just a Z-pack?

Maybe try to convince the doctor to give you some antibiotics, and see if it helps? At least it would narrow down the possibilities.

Don't give up hope. It can take some time with gastro diseases to be properly diagnosed. Same with auto-immune disorders. It took me loosing 23 pounds in 4 weeks for a doctor to take me seriously. I had previously been given every other reason under the sun as to why I was in the w/c every 3 hours. Ask for second opinions or another doctor to check your charts. I had a doctor tell me I probably had lupus, to find out I just have fibromyalgia. Keep a journal of symptoms, food, activities, trips to the w/c. Look for patterns, or no pattern... good luck!!
