A newby here, I found this site while trying to research for medical answers to a new symptom that I'm having. Im spitting up blood. I didn't find any answers but now I'm just alittle scared with all the researched that I read. I can't diagnose myself with the new symptom I'm having I could make a guess but thats gets me no where so its best I'll leave that up to my Dr. From what I looked up it could be afew different things going on I'm not sure whichso I will call Dr. on Monday.
I was diagnosed with crohns in 2008 I had stomach problems years before getting diagnosed and over the counter med zantac helped me for afew years then I had a bad go and had to go to the hospital I was amitted the pain was bad. After having several Endoscocy/colonoscopy,xrays I was told I had crohns.
I have a small 3 inch infected part of instestine they could not get pass. A small ulcer,IBS, gerd, gastritus. I also had to have my esphagus stretched. The first time they did not put me to sleep "make sure you ask to be put to sleep during those procedures it hurts badly. Well the second time they put me to sleep and any future ones they will put me to sleep to.
I'm taking nexium,entocort,asacol.
I have several bouts of bad stomach cramps each week and it doesn't seem to matter what I eat.
I'm am up all night lots of nights from stomach cramping. I have not had any surgery but I'm thinking it doesn't lie off to far from the future because the meds don't help always. I was hoping I could go off them soon in the future but it doesn't look like it.
I think we can better understand our crohns disease to hear from others so although I'm not doing great right now doesn't mean that tommorrow won't be better. It seems night time is when I begin cramping the worse.
I'll update once Dr. tells me why I'm spitting up the blood'
Have agreat week end everyone
