| | Ulcerative Colitis? Chrohns?
I am a 25 year old female with a family history of lupus, chrones, and ulcerative colitis. A week ago I was taken to the ER due to the mass amount of blood I was having in my bowel movements, as well as the extreme stomach pain and cramping. They took a CT of my abdomon and it showed my 3/4 of my colon was inflamed, and they leaned towards the cause being ulcerative colitis. They immediatley put me on steroids and admitted me to the hospital. 3 days later,once the inflammation was down, they performed a colonoscopy and endoscopy. Upon this procedure they found a small imflamed portion of my colon, and after the biopsy results, concluded it was neither ulcerative colitis or chrons. Has anyone gone through this before? Could the steroids have masked my problem before the doctor was able to diagnose? Any suggestions or comments are appreciated. : )
