Back in 2013 I had the Promethus IBD blood test that came back as Crohn's. My GI had done every test and never found any evidence. A month ago I was having large amounts of rectal bleeding and had a CT which showed 60 percent of my colon inflamed more so on the right (right colon and transverse) and then the sigmoid colon. Stool tests came back normal. I was started on antibiotics anyways. I continued to get worse on the antibiotics. Ended up being hospitalized for a couple days and started on steroids, I slowly got better. I stopped the steroids and my symptoms came back. I was subsequently restarted and my symptoms started going away (abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and bleeding). I had a CT enterography which came back normal. My GI still has a strong suspicion it is IBD due to the improvement in my symptoms when on steroids. He ordered the Promethus IBD blood test again, came back negative even though previous consistent with Crohn's. I was on prednisone when that was drawn. I am scheduled to have upper and lower scope next month. I feel frustrated with this situation. When I was in in the hospital the doctor actually mentioned that my abdominal pain was likely due anxiety even though not even a week earlier the CT showed all the inflammation. I am currently on an 8 week prednisone taper. I have lost 16 pounds over this past month when this all started.
