Well, this is my first time posting on the IBS board. I used to post on the Crohns board, but I recently got a second opinion from another GI doc, and he thinks I might have IBS instead of Crohns. Anyways, I've been having crazy never-ending stomach/abdominal pains that are very painful especially when they flare up (except I don't really have any other syptoms, like D, Vomitting, etc), and the doctors don't really know why. I have taken pretty much every test in the book, and all of them showed nothing serious. Has anyone else out there ever heard of this situation???
Appreciate all responses
Have had Mild/Severe Stomach/Abdominal pain for the last 12 months. Made a few trips to the ER for the pain. Have had no other syptoms of Crohn's or IBS that are typical. All tests showed nothing. Hernia surgeon thought it was a hernia. Went for Hernia Surgery (for nothing). After recent Colonoscopy, GI thinks its most likely Crohns, becuase of inflamation he saw in small Intenstine (but not 100% convinced yet). Going for the Camera Pill test next month. Tried Pentasa and Entocort for 6 weeks; both of which havene't done much to reduce this chronic-never-ending pain. Saw a different GI last week for a second opinion and he thinks I might have IBS, so for the past week I've been taking Hyoscyamine, Nortriptylin and Citrucel (of which aren't helping as of yet)
