Please tell me you have had your B-12 level checked!!  B-12 helps make 
the myelin sheath covering on nerves and a lack of it can cause your 
symptoms.  A lack can also lead to progressive numbness to the point of 
paralysis!  An outside source is needed because of the malabsorption of 
this vital nutrient in most IBD suffers; therefore, you might need 
monthly deep intramuscular injections of B-12 (cyanocobalalum).  A B-12 
level has to be SPECIFICALLY ordered, it is not routinely performed in 
any blood tests!  

I hope this helps, Stephan...
