Ok. So, I was in the hospital for 3 days almost 2 weeks ago due to some sort of flare. Extreme pain on my left side, 20+ bathroom trips, was passing nothing but mucus with blood streaks by the time I went in to the ER. They admitted me, put me on Flagyl, Levaquin, and prednisone.
A week later, my doctor ordered a colonoscopy.
It came back completely clear, biopsies included.
What the HECK?? I am completely baffled, as is my doctor. I'm still having pretty steady pain on my left side, but nowhere near the level it was when I was in the hospital. Bowels are close to normal (5-6 trips a day), but I'm still on prednisone, which usually keeps things fairly calm.
Anyone have any great ideas or suggestions? I'm at my wit's end with all this. It's impeding my ability to work, enjoy my toddler, go out, etc. Help. :(
