how coincidental, Crohniemom, I just asked on another thread how to find fistulas!
I've just been diagnosed and I have all sorts of weird pains in my abdomen, sometimes what I eat results in tingling or burning or aching in some areas, sometimes the groin, and this has been going on for years pre diagnosis. I asked my GI (who found the inflammation, but has little else to recommend him) and he said well, the nerves there are all related. or it could just be ibs, he said. I had a sbs which was normal. would that have found a fistula? is there some sign I might have a fistula? or should I get an MRI as part of my initial Crohn's workup? I had an MRI a couple years back for my uterus. would they have seen a fistula or does it need to be done specifically looking for it? normally I'd just ignore these pains but I keep reading posts about hidden inflammation and fistulas and I'd like to address this sooner rather than later.
any help would be appreciated, thanks!
