Please help me....Crohns?

Hey! This is my first post in here. Im not very good at writing in english but I will try my best.
For some years I had severe pain in my stomac and back, been in and out at my doctor's office. They never find anything specific... But 1 month ago i noticed blood and very big mucus in my stool. Im not talking little bit but BIG mucus clots! My doc thought it was ulcerous but did not fint anything on colonoskopy. My calprotectin came back very high. 1500... im very constipaided now. My ct just showed that i had stool in my tummy and there is something that makes it hard for me to emty all... how did ypu get diagnosed and do this reming you of crohns in small intestine? That what they think...

Your symptoms and the calprotectin test suggest some significant inflammation going on in your gut. You should be consulting a specialist - a gastroenterologist, and talk to this doctor about ordering a capsule camera endoscopy (pill cam) to get a look at the interior of the small bowel to look for ulcers and the inflamed area. That's how my Crohn's was finally diagnosed.
