I am very new to IBD and so happy I found this forum.
I have been sick for the past 3 weeks, it started off as a throat infection and UTI that lasted for 10 days. I then took antibiotics to help with the UTI and started getting incredibly painful cramps in my stomach and persistent in my right abdomen.
I had to go to the emergency department and they did tests and then diagnosed me with an ovarian cyst.
The pain continued and I went to see a gynaecologist who then said I have no cyst, but she doesn't know why I have this pain.
She suggested an MRI and CT scan but it costs so much and so I decided to wait and see if the pain will go away after menstruation and it is still here and getting so painful again.
I have also been having dairee for the past month and I feel so fatigued and I have no energy. My depression has also gotten worse and I have been having panic attacks and feel like I want to go insane.
I have made an appointment with the gastroentoroligist after reading about IBD as I think I might have IBD.
I have been struggling with IBS for years and it runs in my family.
Can anyone recommend if I should do the MRI, will this be able to give me a proper diagnosis?
Thank you for this group, I hope I can find what is wrong with me.
