I've been struggling all my life with gastrointestinal issues, and over the past few years my symptoms have started to really impact my life.
I've been seen by many different doctors particularly over the last few years, because I started to get periods of full body aches and fatigue, with abdominal pain I had grown to think was normal. My CPR markers were high during these periods (once was over 200) and I was seen by a rheumatologist who referred me to genetic testing which hasn't shown anything.
I've recently had a period of bloody diarrhoea and was told it could possibly be Crohn's, however all the tests I've had previously (endoscopy, colonoscopy, faecal calprotectin) have shown nothing.
After researching, I'm almost certain I have Crohn's, as I have literally every symptom mentioned. I have eye irritation, a mild rash on my lower leg, fatigue, stomach irritation, and these symptoms along with the diarrhoea (sometimes with blood) and abdominal pain all point to Crohn's.
Has anyone got any advice as to how I can push my gastroenterologists to do more testing as they're hesitant because they've done them before.
Thank you in advance!
