I’m 20 years old and was kind of diagnosed with crohns when i was 16/17. I never had stomach or bathroom issues until the summer i was turning 17. I was going on vacation and all of the sudden started having tons of blood in my stool and flew back home to see a GI there. They admitted me and did scopes & everything, to which they said id need surgery as part of my bowel was dying. So i got a resection and was put on mesalamine and omerprazole at the time. They tested me for crohns and ulcerative colitis and didn’t really have any answers or conclusions to give me. Since then i’ve had flare ups and have been put on prednisone in order to calm my gut back down. I’m in another flare again, which is why i’ve decided to join the forum as it makes me very tired physically and mentally. Very frustrating not knowing what to do as I don’t seem to have an official diagnosis, although my doctor always calls it crohns. Probably doesn’t help that i’ve had 3 different gi doctors in the past 3/4 years.
