Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I would recommend seeing a gastroenterologist and getting evaluated for Chrons again.  Do you feel constipated or are you having diarrhea?

Well i am also hypothyroid and that causes a lot of constipation but sometimes i have diarrhea...the thing is that once i get the urge to go if i do not hit the bathroom ASAP..i can not do anything to stop it...I was told i do not fit the profile for Crohns because i am not thin, i dont go to the bathroom after i eat...but what is causing my problems...i have been dealing with this since i was in high school...i need help...the prob is i live in mexico and not sure what to ask for..What will a CT scan show or is a colonoscopy needed?

You do not need to be thin to have crohn's disease.  I think you need a colonoscopy to properly evaluate this.

It may be common for people who have crohns to be thin, but not everyone is thin who has crohns.  I don't quite know what you mean by "cobblestone" so I can't answer your question on that.

I was told that when you have Crohns and look inside the intestines if the appearance is cobblestone then it is Crohns....it has a certain appearance that sets it apart from other IBD's.

I have never heard of the cobblestone appearance so I can't comment on that.  The way crohns is diagnosed, along with other IBD's, is through biopsies of the colon and small intestine.
