Hello there,
Distal Ileal ulcers with raised ESR are suspicious for Intestinal Tuberculosis (TB). Looking at the tests prescribed for you I think your doctor is already trying to rule out the presence or absence of TB. I think you can safely continue the current medications as I don't think they are the cause of your pain.
If you don't mind I would like to know if you are you having any low grade fever, cough, weight loss? Have you noticed any swellings in your neck or armpits?
Hope I have answered your query. Looking forward for further information from you. I will be available in case of any further queries.
Get well soon.
