Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If you have a family history of Crohn’s, then the symptoms you have could be due to Crohn’s Disease which along with gut related symptoms also causes neurological and skin related symptoms and joint pains. The neurological symptoms get aggravated with each attack. If the possibility of Crohn’s is ruled out in your case, then other inflammatory bowel conditions are to considered such as celiac disease, IBS or lactose intolerance.
I would strongly recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system). It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
