If the Doc has already diagnosed me with left sided colitis, could there still be a chance for crohns? Ulcers under tongue/throat/lesions since dec13

2 doctors agree

In brief: Crohn's disease

is still a possibility especially if your diagnosis was not biopsy based.
If gastrointestinal symptoms persist re-consult a gastroenterologist.
