Crohns? NEW
by: Annette Young

Hello there,

I am sorry to hear that you have had to rush to ER after finding blood, I hope by the time that you read this you are feeling a little better. Crohn's can cause so many problems but one thing you should note, is that if you have any concerns about the results of your tests, you must push for more answers.

I know when you are unwell the last thing that you will feel like doing is to keep pushing for additional medical support, but although there are some great doctors out there, there are also those who do not seem to fully understand the implications of this disease.

My mother was falsely diagnosed in the first instance and later diagnosed with Crohn's disease, but she was in and out of hospital like the proverbial yo-yo and know one seemed to want to give us answers. My mother was in so much pain and was obviously afraid of the outcome, that even when they did talk to her, she couldn't seem to fully grasp the basics of what they were saying.

I think fear paralyzed her mind alongside the pain, so we would always ensure that a family member would go with her.

I attach a link that discusses constipation and diarroea with Crohn's as a starting point for you, and I hope that you are able to get relevant answers and for support going forward.

Elevated BP can indicate an infection or that Crohns is active. Feces can be present in the bowel even with an obstruction you may have a slight obstruction but the xray should show evidence of this.
