For the past 3 days, I have been miserable. I really don't know what's going on!
It started Monday, at work I noticed I had been urinating more than usual. After I got home, I was going about every 30 minutes.
Then the stomach pains come. Along with the gurgling noises.
This was still going on yesterday, so I went to my primary doctor. She diagnosed it as an UTI (Which I really don't think that's it) and gave me some bactrim.
Today I'm not urinating as much, but I am in soo much pain.
Earlier after a shower I got reallly dizzy and started feeling nauseous.
I have had no appetite for the past 2 days
what is going on here?!
anyone have any advice? any idea what could be wrong?

Diagnosed with Crohn's in 2004. Colon resection in 2004
Had symptoms since about 2002.
Not currently on any medication. On Pentasa and Entocort in the past, with no results.

I am wondering if the Bactrim is the problem. I think that is a sulfa med, possibly you are reacting to that???? Antibiotics can really do a number on us Crohnies. I would call your doc and describe how you are feeling, maybe they can change you to another antibiotic. Be sure you are taking a good probiotic at least 2 hours after your anti-b's. Good luck!

Yeah I would agree with Nanners. If the pains are occuring because of your Crohn's I would see if your doctor could put you on Flagyl. It's a good med that would help you. It leaves a funny taste in your mouth but it's worth it.
