Hi all, reaching out to you guys as you've been so helpful in the past.
I’m in a weird place right now with my Crohns. I currently am on Entivyo which I have not been the happiest with, as I’ve been having issues in the past with nausea and vomiting, but recently a new symptom has been cramping after eating (and cramping in general). Over the weekend I had awful cramps that were near debilitating, could barely sit or stand without being in pain. Sometimes throwing up would relieve this, though not always. I’ve been eating mostly soup or eggs, and have been scared to eat much more.
I saw my doctor who did bloodwork which came back totally normal (slightly anemic but that is always the case with me) with no signs of inflammation. He did a stool sample and my stool did show signs of inflammation but nothing else (no blood).
I’m wondering if others have had anything like this. Did I pickup a norovirus? Could it possibly be a kidney stone (I’ve web-md myself into thinking it might be as the cramping and nausea match, though I’m not having difficulty peeing etc).
My doctor has me on prednisone which is maybe slightly better, though the cramps are still present. I notice them quite a bit while laying down, its been hard to sleep properly. I’ve got an MRI next week, hoping that helps find out what this is or that the prednisone helps kick in.
Anyway just wondering if anyone has any thoughts or tips! Thanks, David
