For 6 years I've been sick and off and on they mention Crohn's disease. I have the symptoms of it. I have chronic diarrhea, lost 35lbs, nausea, and terrible abdominal pain around my bellybutton that swells up sometimes all the way up to my liver. When you press on it I want to vomit.
I have had a long standing issue with absorbing b12 even with shots and supplements.
I've done CT's, MRI's, 2 colonscopies, 2 endoscopies, 2 upper GI's, 1 barium enema.. they can't find anything that shows crohn's on the inside. Someone mentioned that my pain is located in my ilium which is wher eb12 is absorbed. if i had crohn's it would make sense. Some people say you can't get to all of the small intestine with endo or colonscopy. Is that true? The gastros are pretty cocky and think they know everything, and because I'm a girl I must be nervous but Im not a nervous person.
Am I missing something? I have arthritis and inflammation, I weigh 100lbs and am 24 years old now. this is insane... so is there a possibility there could be crohn's? My doctor says yes but the gastros say their busy and if it isnt obvious then its 'probably' not there.
