Can't be my period, I had a total hysterectomy back in 94. They took everything. I've been feeling like this for about 3 or 4 days.

Potsie,
I have absolutely no idea what may be going on, but you deserve validation and a response of some kind! Fat lot of good I will did though with any kind of help!! Please ckeck with your dr and find out. I have Interstitial Cystitis which involves my bladder. It feels like I need to go to the bathroom all the time and when I do pee it feels like a cat crawled into my bladder and started scratching! *ouch* But it also makes my lower (bladder!) stomach area crap as well as hurting in my back. Sorry, that's about all I've got for you! Let me know how it goes for ya!

Thanks cat. I started to think I was invisible. Ha! I'm doing stuff around the house this morning, and then have to run errands. Then going to see my son at the hospital. I'm hurting already, and will be hurting a lot more when the day is done.

Potsie,
Could it be all the extra work you are doing to take care of your son? I am worried about you caregiving for him so much that you neglect youself. How are your guts doing? Unfortunately, there is some research that states crohns might have a genetic component, and it has been suggested that stress can trigger off crohns. Please do take good care of yourself.

Navy, it could possibly be. I'm trying to take care of myself as much as possible.

Oh Potsie,
I didn't know you had an issue with a child (no matter how old)! I'm so very sorry whatever it may be! Man! Sometimes a person just needs a break and it sounds like you do. I also didn't realize you had Crohn's until the post from Navy. A friend of mine used to tell me that if I didn't slow down, my body would make me! She was right on the money!! I also had a very close friend who developed Crohn's when he was 14. It was a horrible disease and the things he went through were unreal. He had so many surgeries it seemed impossible that he had any bowels left. When he got stressed, it always flared up! So, please be careful and take good care of yourself. Let us know how you are this evening, o.k?

Cat, it's my son that has Crohns. He just got diagnosed last year, so we're still trying to deal. I've posted about it several times in the Crohns thread, so that'll tell you more. Thanks for your concern.

Dear Potsie, I went to the Crohn's website and read. First of all, your son, you and the rest of your family are now on several prayer lists that I'm involved with and also I am in prayer as well and will continue to be. The illness of a child is overwhelming, all consuming. Just know that if you need anything that I can do, I will. Please keep us informed. I will begin to check on Crohn's posts as well in case you are unable to post both places.

Thanks Catz, that so sweet of you! I really appreciate it. I just posted an update in the Crohns section.

Hi Potsie,

I was just reading your post and it reminded me of my mother last year. She was just about to be released from the ER for "nothing" when they found diverticulitis (sp?). Apparently she had suffered a really bad episode and it required quite a lot of antibiotics to get better. Now she has to watch what she eats all of the time and follow some pretty strict guidelines.

Please be careful. I'm afraid that so many people dismiss abdominal pains that you may want to go directly to the specialist instead of dealing with the primary care or ER doctors.

Best to you!

Potsie, if they symptoms continue I'd consider seeing your PCP. You could have a urinary tract infection. Normally you will have pain in the flank area (sides of your back) and pelvic pain. If left untreated it could get serious. If you develop any fever or vomiting get to the doctor soon!

Potsie,
Not necessarily would it manifest like that. I encourage you to get yourself checked out.

I'm planning on it soon. I was waiting for my son to get better and get home. Thanks for advice!

Sorry it took so long to respond. I'm not really sure what her symptoms were, other than the intense pain.

All the best!

I'm really hurting this morning. That seems to be the only symptom I'm having. Except my bottom feels like it's going to drop off.
