I think that this is what David (our tech guy) has. It falls under the IBD umbrella, which includes Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis too. So it's like a sister disease to Crohn's.

At the begining of this year, which set everything off, I was diagnosed with colitis. I dont know if they are related. However, since that episode I have been flaring since and its been the worst for me it has ever been. I was on A LOT of antibiotics and spent 10 days in the hospital.

Yep, I was diagnosed with Lymphocytic Colitis which is a form of microscopic colitis. It sucks, but it's certainly not the end of the world and if you're going to have a form of IBD (Crohn's is a form of IBD, as is Ulcerative Colitis), it seems to be a bit less harsh than some of the others. Of course, severity of symptoms varies from person to person. Good luck with your test results
