Apologies for TMI... Got reeeeeeally uncomfortable bum pain.
Was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2008 but have had very little stomach pain in that time, having other strange symptoms.
Last CT scan shown a significant area of narrowing so I assume I'm on borrowed time with that.
Now, last 6 weeks or so, mostly after eating, I've felt like I have something up my bum & a really bad deep aching pressure up there, even reaching 8/10 on the pain scale. My achilles has been HUGE & I've struggled to walk at times, these pains always correlate.
Was constipated for the first 3 weeks but just normal now; no D, no blood, nothing. Also had migrating joint pain in the time.
Had sciatica & low back pain after eating also 🤔
Today the area about an inch above my anus (toward my back) is hurting, it feels sore just below the surface, maybe the tissue inside but not sure? Feels burny & heavy, making me feel a bit sick.
I have no lumps there but something feels different, can't work out what. Maybe more squidgy? Looks ok from what I can see (I have a fat bum so it's difficult, haha). I have no fever & I feel ok, bit of a sore throat (which sweets make 1mil times worse!).
Any thoughts as to what could be going on?
I have specialist on 23rd so trying to hang on til then but I'm pretty miserable xx
