Docs say I have ulcerative colitis but I don't have diarreah. Just had several bleeding ulcers in the decending colon. Doc thinks it's ischemic colitis but he's not sure. This happened at the same time my RA Factor came back positive and I may have rheumatoid arthritis. Just took a whole body bone scan. Every joint has arthritis and I have it in my back. Never been tested for HLA-B27 gene.
Can you please tell me how they knew your colitis was ischemic? How did they determine that? I know that UC patients have a lot of issues with their bones. Did you take a bone density test? I did and it came out osteoporosis. Common.
Sister has the ulcerative colitis, and ankylosing spondylitis. I have HLAB27 but other stuff going on with muscles sore, rash, fever, swelling of them various places. Bone aches No Sjrogens, no lupus, no lyme. no bone loss
