I'm very new to this forum so please be gentle and I apologise in advance if I do anything wrong as I know there are rules to these kind of things.
Ok here goes I am in desperate need of your wisdom and help about
anything and everything IBD. I'm going to start my story from my symptoms today and the tests I've already had because if I begin from when it originally started I'll be here all night and you'll get very bored very quickly
here is my story.....I am a 30 year old female from the uk and I am suffering horrendously. I have so far had a stool sample tested for bugs came back Negative it was tested for calprotectin which came back as very high at 990
I have hade a clear colonoscopy and biopsies taken which are apparently normal to my dismay I know that sounds strange but I just want an answer. My symptoms at present are... I have nausea on and off and can't eat. I have these bouts of what seem like sickness bugs but I've had that many thay can't possibly be. I have eggy/sulphur burps (sorry tmi) I have constant diarrhea with bouts of immediate need to run to the nearest ladies which then immediately makes me lethargic. I have pain in my right knee not constant and right groin sometimes. I also have itchy hands which are now peeling in patches probably has nothing to do with my stomach but I'm putting it down just in case
I have stomach cramps sometimes they are unbearable but most days it feels like a hot pin poking my insides it also sometimes feels like someone is squeezing my insides but that's when I feel I need the loo.
I know this is a lot of info I just need advice of what to do, ask, say at my next appointment in march to see the gastro dr thank you and so sorry it's so long it's a years worth of pain in one little forum box
