I just had an Inflammatory Bowel panel drawn which came

I just had an Inflammatory Bowel panel drawn which came back positive. My infectious disease MD was looking for the cause of my ESR of 119, and CRP of 79. I have very mild cramping and about 2 loose stools a day, no mucus of bloody stools though. I've had an EGD/colonoscopy that were negative, and stool for occult blood is negative. However, my Hgb/Hct has dropped 4 counts over the last 2 months, from 14/40 to 10/32. I've had debilitating new headaches also. I've also lost 20 lbs without trying, over 4 months. My ID MD tells me that I most likely have "ulcerative colitis, without the colitis". I did not know this was possible, and don't read anything about this on the internet. What can you say about this?

Hi doctor I have imflamatory bowel disease. My husband is convinced that it caused by the constant use of my laptop in bed on top of my stomach. Please can you confirm if a laptop can cause any damage to my intestines. My husband is also convinced that laptop use is the cause of my flares. I am self employed and lead a busy life which often means I work in bed at night with my laptop on my stomach.

I am very scared

It started as a very high fever(about 40 Celsius degrees) as well as bleeding injuries in the oral cavity, esophagus and stomach. Symptoms disappeared after doctors applied anti-viral cure. However the results of examinations did not indicate any viral infection. The doctors suspect Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Could this illness be the cause of my symptoms? How can it be cured? Who can I turn to for help?
