I see this post is an older one but it caught my eye.. Has anyone been tested for Crohns Disease or Ulcerative Colitis? All these post sound SO SO SO much like my life for the last several years from the food, pain, fatigue, EVERYTHING! and was diagnosed with CD about 9 years ago and UC on top of crohns less than a year ago. Hope all of you have gotten better since these posts were made but if not just incase figured I would throw these 2 out there. Both can disguise themselves as many other things. there are many times i end up in the er thinking i have a kidney stone or even gall stones and both usually end up being my Crohns. Crohns mostly effects the right side in the beginning then its all out war.. not to scare anyone.. but its a huge possibility and something that should not be ignored!View Thread
