Do I have Crohns or not?

I have had sickness and runs and stomach no blood pains for 25 years or more I was diagnosed then irritable bowel syndrome I have e lost many days off work my Symptom's after an attack are joints painful fingers legs most joints, lethargic for a day or two. recently I passed out and hit my stomach very hard on the edge of the bath which has aggravated my condition. I have had 3 colonoscopies and the capsule with a camera in it which showed ulceration I received a letter saying that I have croans discease, 3 weeks later I have another colonoscopy where no signs of croans were found. I am having an Mri scan soon. Really my question is can ulceration with croans come and then appear to go completely? please any ideas has any one else had this problem.

It would seem unlikely that the Crohnís would go away swiftly especially with no established
medication routine.
Usually takes time if ever for a Crohn's remission.
It may be wise to get checked out after that blow on your stomach...you should let the docs know what happened to you.
Feel better soon

Hi Trysha thanks for your advice I hope you are right about it sounds like its not croans

I have my MRI scan this Saturday I will have my follow up consultation in April 2019


I would hope that the appointment will be brought forward if the scan proves to be croans

Many Thanks for your time to help me and is much appreciated Mike

Hi Mike
I did not mean to indicate that it is not crohnís......rather that it can be an elusive condition to diagnose.
If ulceration was noted then it is cause for concern.....and needs a differential diagnosis by the experts.If itís crohns then there are a number of drugs that may be helpful to you.
The fact that there are other tests ordered is in your favour for a clearer diagnosis.
All the best for the future.
Keep in touch and let us know how things go for you.
Feel better soon

Hi Trysha thanks for your reply I understood what you said perhaps I am hoping for too much. five years ago I was classed as fit since then heart attack triple by pass the few years later diabetes type 2 perhaps I am hoping against hope that I do not have to endure another illness had the mri scan, my follow up is now been brought forward Jan 9th rather than April as first planned just keeping my fingers crossed once again thanks for the answer and your time.

Regards Mike

Hi Mike...itís good to see your appointment has been brought forward...means less time to worry.
Itís hard when coping with other conditions to have another one put on our shoulders.
I was diagnosed pre diabetic and I read that cinnamon can lower blood sugar.
I now take a daily dose of cinnamon,150mg Sisu brand...and never looked back...I have been taking it for two years....blood glucose remains normal..
Wish it would do the same for crohnís....
Try to relax a little and enjoy Christmas as much as you can
Cheers!
