    Also ask them to give you the pill with a camera in it.  It will show a portion of the intestines that an endoscopy and a colonoscopy can't get to and where Crohns

    ?sometimes hides.  Did with my spouse.

      I think sharing my spouses symptoms may confuse your specialist.  Please go back to your childhood with what may have seemed like silly little aches and pains.  In my spouse and grandaughter these were the initial beginning of their Crohns.  Keep pushing for answers.
