Hello Everyone, This is my first post.
Diagnosed with Crohn's disease following capsule endoscopy, (the pill cam) in July last year. I have multiple apthous ulcers in the jejunum and am suffering from loops of jejunum with thickening and distension.
My questions are
1. Are the apthoid ulcers the beginnings of crohn's?
2. Do these ulcers get bigger or deeper?
3. Is the incredible fatigue part of the illness?
4. I am taking tramadol for pain, but I do not have the runs as most other sufferers experience.
I am also having trouble with the most incredible itching over my body today I have had another blood test as I keep suffering from hepatitis (not drug related ) just very elevated liver enzymes.
I am so sorry for the questions, but my GI Doctor just gives very basic facts and I dont know anyone else who suffers from this disease.
From the time I was a teenager (I am now 48) I suffered terribly from diarrhea which the doctors put down to nerves, but this hasnt happened since I turned 40. I also had my gallbladder removed when I was 15, no stones but diseased.
The mornings are the worst, I feel bloody awful.
I am a female with two children.
Looking forward to hearing from you .
