Help me please with possible Crohns
I hope you dont mind me posting here but I dont know what else to do. Will try give a full story whilst keeping it short.
I am 42,female and I have been "not right" for years but particuarly the last 18 months. I have every symptom of rheumatoid arthritis bit no markers in my blood. My joints are very painful. I am always exhausted but I toddle on. Six weeks ago I started getting sharp cramping pain on my left side, As I have ibs I assumed it was that. Unfortunately it got worse over Christmas. I went to the Dr on th 27th in awful pain. I now cant tell where the pain is, its left side, right side and in the middle. Its awful. He thought I may have another ovarian cyst or a urine infection. He gave me Augmentin 500 and booked a scan for 28th. Scan showed no cyst but dr worried about my bowel and I have been referred for a barium enema.Dr said Crohns disease possibly, hence I ended up here.
I have been taking the antibiotics but I feel so much worse, I ache everywhere, I cant settle due to the pain. Im not hungry but im trying to eat. My wee hurts since yesterday and my pooh has gone black but im not on any supplements. My husband is terrified hes never seen me so ill and all my friends are saying how awful I look.
I just dont know what to do, I feel like a drama queen and I just want to cry all the time. I have never hurt so much as now. Can you offer any advice please? Thank you
