This is exactly what is happening with my husband. His mornings are terrible. He gets up, takes a shower, and then the fun begins. Usually, the pain is so bad- then he has diarrhea- by 2 pm, he may have had 10-20 rounds of diarrhea, and then he is "ok".. meaning he might have little twinges of pain, but he is hungry and actually wants to eat.
We don't have an official diagnosis, yet. The doctor is very suspicious of this, though. He has had this for 20 years, and each year, he has more and more bouts of this. It always happens in the morning, and it doesn't matter what he ate the night before. He has reflux, and takes meds for that, and had high blood pressure 10 years ago that has been treated and in good control. He is tired all the time- 10 years ago, he had a colonoscopy which showed nothing suspicious- nor indicated crohn's at the time, but the doctor said that can actually change over time. He is now 51, and has these episodes 1- 4 times a week, and then might go 2 weeks or more and not have any problems. THe longest he goes now betweeen flare ups of some sort is about 2 months, and thenwhen he does have an issue, it always lasts about a week, and then spontaneously goes away, jus tlike it came. His bowels return to normal, etc..
HIs blood work was all whacked out- he had some elevated results and some lower then norm results.. so they have referred him on to a specialist.
He never has any bloody issues, just watery diarrhea, lots of it, and lots of pain.
He also has some weird rash on his back that just developed a few months ago, it is on the back of both shoulders,near his shoulder blades. I don't know what that is.. or if it is anything. I just can't wait to get to the bottom of all of this, and figure this out.
nyone who might have some insight I would appreciate it.
