Chrohn's?? Undiagnosed and feeling overwhelmed!

Hello to all;
To make a long story short-for the past 4 months It has been a roller coaster.  4 months ago I was in the ER for 1st time vaginal bacteria infection..Took 2 treatments of antibiotics..2nd trip ended with going in with bad chest pain-ended with tylenol induced hepatitus (hepatitis) which is cleared now.. 3rd yesterday ended in Er with abdominal pain vaginal discharge ended with same diagnosis infection..Well in these last 4 months i have suffered with daily fatique and joint pain , abnormal bowel movements with mucus,slight blood in the stool itself. abdominal cramping and pain pinching feeling... right lower abdomen,lower back cramping. Some regurg of food when burp.My tongue is white with raised tastebuds in back of tongue  and furred looking otherwise.Sleep apnea(insomnia)fatique My question is can this bacterial infection that I seem to keep getting be linked to Chrohn's or causing it??? Again the only diagnosis I have at this point is possibly Chrohn's..Or an autoimmune disease.My sed rate is high ,and IgA is high,mpv(platelet volume low)low vitamin d, low calcium. It is not thyroid, ANA neg, Rheumotoid facter neg.  This has been so mentally draining! I feel so depressed, I feel that I may lose my job, my spouse, I feel like evreything is crashing around me,And no one around me understands truly!  Thanks for any support!

Hello; I'm sorry to hear that you are also searching for answers it is a very frustrating thing..Switching from doctor to doctor and specialist.... I work at a school so I do have personal days and such but i feel like it looks really bad for me, even though I have brought in proof that my time off is medical...I have I guess good news I called my gastro doc office this morning and told them of my ER visit last night..I had a colonoscopy scheduled for March 9th but the office called and wants me to have it done next Monday..... So maybe? some answers I hope nothing bad :( I hope you can get figured out as well ...Thanks for your reply I will try to update on the site.
