:confused:I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis, chronic gastritis, GERD, and now ulcerative colitis. I have had so many tests, blood work, cultures, you name it.

The gastritis and GERD were so bad I agreed to surgery after the tests showed the inflamation was eroding my esophagus and the medication was not helping. Three weeks after surgery I was readmitted to the hospital passing blood. A colonoscopy revealed ulcers and bleeding all through the colon. Now after three weeks of medicine the bleeding is back. All byopsies and cultures are negative but I keep having inflamation in my insides with no reason why.

I was told today that I probably have an autoimmune disease that is fighting against my own body but they aren't sure what to do. I see another doctor tomorrow but don't know where to turn.
