Elevated Crohn's Markers
(Baton Rouge, LA USA)
About 5 months ago I was told that markers in my blood were elevated for either Crohn's or UC. My mother has Crohn's and I initially visited the doctor for increasing right knee joint pain and neck pain. He tells me that it is almost inevitable that in the next year or two my symptoms will worsen, and I will develop one of the two diseases. I am so discouraged right now. My colonoscopy and small bowel follow thru was negative. I have flare-ups of fatigue and rheumatoid symptoms every month. What do I do? Can I prevent or postpone the onset of Crohn's?
