I went on a trip to India a year and a half ago. When I returned, I became ill- nausea, vomitting, blood in stool, stomach pain, headaches, fatigue, etc...

The doctors ran numerous tests. I tested negative for bacteria, and parasites. Blood test, tyroid, etc, looked ok. Turned out I had inflammation in my colon, and stomach erosions. I ended up taking medicine for chrons/colitis for a year.

I still haven't felt well, so they did another colonoscopy, etc, to check up on me. Now, apparently my colon inflammation is gone (now they think I don't have colitis since it appears to be gone, which is stupid because colitis can come back at any time); however, my bladder and stomach are inflammed. It seems the inflammation is trading off between my different organs.

The doctors are giving me drugs that treat the inflammation; however, no one seems to bring up that these all could be linked. Or, they just reply, "oh, maybe they are, but we don't know"
I feel sick daily with nausea, fatigue, etc, and this has affected the hours I'm able to work, family life, and so on.

Could these all be linked? I don't want them to send me away, and then 3 months down the road something else is inflammed. Please help!!
