So I plan on seeing a doctor soon, about another week and I will have heath insurance. But I was wondering if maybe some of you could help me out. My grandmother on my maternal side had Chrons and I am afraid I may have it. When I was young I noticed blood in my stool for the first time. I told my parents and they kind of blew it off, saying it could just be me mistaking my cycle for blood in my stool. I was also having very bad stomach pains often and had issues with constipation- sometimes I would go 3 days without being able to go. So we went to the hospital and they did a colonoscopy, they didn't find anything, they also sent me home with a stool sample test but my parents never took it back to the hospital to be tested. That was when I was about 13 years old. I am now 21 and am still having issues. Every once in awhile I will see blood or mucus in my stool (sometimes more often than others). I will be constipated for days, then will have very bad diarrhea and cramps for awhile. My appitite changes a lot, sometimes I can eat normal, others I the thought of food will make my stomach hurt. I am also pretty tired all the time. Like very tired. No matter how much or little I sleep. I struggle with depression as well so I don't know if that can have anything to do with this.
I know you can't tell me anything for sure from this, I would just like to know if any of you experince these same things or if it could be something else?
