Greetings.

It seems that the lower bowel endoscopy (colonoscopy) has ruled out ulcerative colitis. There is an another condition called as Crohn's disease (this and ulcerative colitis are called as inflammatory bowel diseases or IBD) which can cause all these symptoms of bad diarrhea, bodyaches and pains, feverish, easy bruising etc. You should ask your primary care physician to get the following investigations done;

1) Barium meal with follow through

2) Peripheral blood film

3) HLA B 27.

These should be able to point to the diagnosis and specific medications for it could be instituted.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

Dr. Arun

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
