Want to try 5ASA or Casana

I have been suffering for years with mucus discharge, bloody stool, loss of appetite, joint pain (back and elbow especially),fatigue and urgency.

Had colonoscopy and no inflammation was found. I light of my symptoms I want to ask the Dr. to try me on 5ASA or Casana, the thought being that if inflammation is there but undiscovered, the meds would give me some relief.

Has anyone ever heard of trying either one of these empirically? I feel like I don't have much to lose.

Also: I had a bleeding duodeal ulcer and Barrett's esophogus about a year ago. Could these in any way be related to my other symptoms?

Thanks so much for listening.
