I am so thankful for this web site!
I am being tested for Crohn's Disease. It started back in July of 2009, out of the blue I got really sick. I started having extream stomach pain that wraped around into my back. I began to loose a lot of weight in a short amount of time. I delt with the pian for a moth before I finaly gave in and went to see the Doctor. From then on the foung that I had anmia. After having an upper GI done they found alot of inflamationin the stomach and esophogus. The Doctors then put me on heartburn meds but with much heart break it did not help. Then after having an MRI done on my galbladder they found that it needed to come out. The specialist said that it was no longer functioning the way it needed to. So in October I had the surgery and had hoped that I would start to feel like my old self. Well almost a year later I am still very sick and getting worse. I am tired all the time to the point that it is affecting my job proformance and my home life. I also am in pain all the time. A few weeks ago I had another upper GI done along with a colonoscopy all it ahowed was that the small intestint was very inflamed. So they sent me to have timed xrays done, drinking the barium. I am now being tested for celiacs desiease and crohn's.
I am at the point that I want to give up I am so fustrated and woren out. I really want answers. I am not myself anymore and it is effecting my 6 year old son. He see's me in pain all the time and he is wored for me. My son says he wants his old mamma back soon, all I can tell him is so do I.
