I go to my GI this Friday but I like to run things by you guys before I go.
For months I've had on & off pain around my belly button. It's not constant but it's very tender, to the point that I'm careful when bending & sometimes have to avoid sleeping on my stomach. I know the terminal ileum is in this area but none of my scopes, etc. have ever shown activity in this area (I'm a Crohn's colitis girl). It's not at all unbearable but it is painful and bothersome. It seems to come in spurts of a week or so at a time. I'm hoping it keeps up til Friday so I can show my dr exactly where it hurts. Anyone have anything similar?
p.s. There's an article in September's (I'm a lil behind) Glamour about
autoimmune diseases being on the rise. Crohn's, UC, celiac disease, MS, lupus get mentioned.
