Hi Everyone! I have yet to be diagnosed with anything specifically but am in the process of getting one. About 6 months ago I started experiencing my first (what I call) flare. Extreme stomach pain (right upper quadrant and abdominal–already got my gallbladder tested and it isn’t that), nausea, diarrhea after eating anything (often beige / yellow in color with fine grounds or lots of mucus, black and tarry, or loose and watery with undigested food in it), upper right back pain, low grade fevers (99.4-100) usually at night, body aches and chills, severe exhaustion, and mouth sores that come and go.
I went to the hospital and they thought it was my gallbladder. When they found out it wasn’t they gave me morphine and lots of IV fluid and sent me on my way home with the name of a gastro doctor. Made my first appointment with the gastro, did a stool sample (they found blood and lots of mucus). I had a colonoscopy that came back normal (with the exception of a few bumps on parts of my intestine). I am going in for an endoscopy on Tuesday.
This past Monday I was in the hospital due to the same severe pain that I had felt the first time around–again, they gave me a CAT scan and found nothing. I do not have these symptoms all the time–they, for the most part, come and go quite frequently (in ‘flares’). I do, however, have constant diarrhea (and sometimes vomiting) after ingesting ANYTHING and severe exhaustion. My doctor believes that this sounds like Crohn’s, but I just want to know if anyone else had similar symptoms and also did not have anything show up on the Colonoscopy. Thank you!
