I have been trying to help my sister as she has been having alot of issues lately with her tummy and the dr dx'd her with diverticulosis but I say it is this DD ...She has not been feeling well for the last few days and she said that at noght mostly when she tries to sleep it feels like something is crawling up her butt, bubbly and kinda itchy...her dr said she doesn't have hemmies bad enough to do that to her. Anyone ever experience this? Any thoughts on what it could be or what she should tell doc to look for? She is on her way as I type this for a cat scan, I am worried...I know the pain this can bring and how quick you can go down hill in a flare.
I should add that she doesn't have a bloated belly or anything like she usually does when she feels like this and she doesn't remember eating anything she shouldn't have in the last few days.
Wow. That is exactly how I would describe the feeling when I first started noticing what turned out to be Crohn's for me. I'd notice at night when I'd go to bed. That "something crawling up me" feeling was so weird and I had no idea what to make of it. I thought I had hemorrhoids or something. I even had a doc tell me that it was 'roids and they wheeled me into surgery and put me under, only to not do the surgery and tell me I had Crohn's.
