Have you been tested for Crohn's disease? It can cause all sorts of nastiness.


aside from a CBC to look for low rbc, hemoglobin and hematocrit or a stool sample to check for blood what are the other tests fo crohns? I haven't had any obvious signs of bloody stools ( other than black stools thanks to my friend pepto bismal). And I def don't have an issue with weight loss... What other symptoms of crohns should I look for?

That is quite a history. Do you plan on having an endoscopy to check for celiac or other issues? If not you could try going gluten free for a few weeks and then try a gluten challenge and see how your body responds.


I forgot that I've had barium swallows that show I have bad gerd. When I layed down, the pill came back up. So they told me to take over the counter pepcid (which isn't cheap!) i have an appointment with GI next month, and if he suggests doing a biopsy I'm all for it. At this point, I'd do anything to feel better and enjoy life.
