This has been happening to me for a while now, it is accompanied by vomiting at times too.
I have had CT scans done and they showed up a 'formation' of something in the colon. I am having a colonoscopy done next week.
I was given codeine phosphate to stop me having the diarrhea, thing is though at times it makes it difficult to actually go to the toilet, so it is swings and roundabouts.
This following bit is just for information and I hope that it will bring home how important it is to push and push our doctors when we don't feel quite 'right'. I know the tendency by a lot of doctors is to say whatever we present with is lupus connected, but what happened to me just lately shows that it might not be. When they did the CT scan on my bowel, part of my right lower lung showed up. I am so glad it did because I am now query lung cancer. They have attempted to do biopsies but the mass is gelatinous and so they can't get anything out so I am having to go over to a mainland hospital and have a general anaesthetic when they have ironed out the worries about my complications with my SLE.
I do so hope you feel better soon. Please do push for further testing. Take care.
