Not sure if this is the right message board, but I've been having some issues and am being referred to a GI. My appt tomorrow is with the nurse, but supposedly she can help me out. Unfortunitely the only sure way to diagnose Crohn's is with a colonoscopy which they wont do because I'm pregnant. From what I read they "think" Crohn's is an autoimmune disease but no one seems clear. It is however an irritable bowel disorder if that helps at all... They also believe it could be genetic, but again, not sure... My mother has it and my 10 year old nephew was also diagnosed this year after being hospitalized for 2 weeks for rectal bleeding.

I'm not sure what to do, I'm just scared and worried and wondering if there is anyone else out there who might be going through this....
