My labs have also been coming back normal. I'm still having all the same symptoms though. It doesn't really make sense to me. I never eat and don't take vitamins or anything. My doc just keeps ordering more and more tests and increasing my medications since my symptoms are all that of a flare up. my colon and large intestines show severe levels of inflammation in colonoscopy. I just had a pill camera test so still waiting on those results.

I have the same issue--my last GI doctor said it was because of the medication combo--that they needed to take that into account when interpreting the labs. (artificially low because the meds systemically suppress the inflammation but not necessarily where they need it)
