I’m feeling fed up… I believe I’m having a flare up as it seems to be similar symptoms each time but the consultant is never really much help.
Abit of back story I was diagnosed with gastritis and had around 7-8 ulcer in my ileum back in 2020, Consultant said it could be the starting of Chrohns but it was hard to differentiate so I was told it was a form of IBD. I was prescribed some seriods which seemed to help and was referred to a dietician.
Since then I go a couple of months being absolutely fine maybe the odd tummy ache but I put that down to IBS but then it starts all back again..
Starts with a noring pain in tummy and slight urgency to go to the toilet then I get a low down tummy ache on the left side which radiates into my back. My consultant thinks the back pain isn’t related but I only ever get pain in my lower back when I have tummy problems. The pain in my lower back is worse this time it’s like a stabbing pain… has anyone else experienced this? I also get random joint pain all over my body in my knees, wrist and hips. I also get a stinging feeling in my hands and feet.
I’m going to the toilet more often which seems to relive the pain slightly, but no blood or diarrhoea. But I have never had that.
In the night I wake up with lower left tummy ache and tingling down my legs… again they think it’s not related. I’ve had an ultrasound on the whole left side which showed nothing so I can only put it down to IBD?
Can the ulcers come back? Will I continue to have flare ups? So many question but I can never seem to get any answers…
I have had every scan Ct, MRI, ultrasound but nothing shows.
I’m being referred back to the consultant and I’m currently taking Omeprazole. But I’m starting to get depressed because I’m in pain everyday and I just want some solid answers.
Thanks for reading hoping someone can relate.
