So, I have many symptoms of crohn's. my GI thought I definitely had a IBD after a barium x ray --- there showed some inflammation -- but later was told that it could have been a shadow, where the colon turns, after negative colonoscopy
i am having diarrhea 5-10 times/day
i am so underweight-- lost 20 pounds in 2 months. 101 lbs at 5'7.
i have neuropathy and arthritis now. skin rashes. red bumps that resemble bruises all over legs.
glossitis. (swollen tongue)
and there is a hard mass in my right side of my stomach and it feels like there are needles on that side.
also, had slightly elevated WBC. (2 months ago when had colonoscopy)
enlarged lymph nodes too
the neuropathy, glossitis, arthritis, chronic fatigue, showed up a month after the scope. diarrhea has been constant for 1 year or more.
i gave up on the GI after the scope because i felt so stupid and embarrassed. but i have an appointment to go back next week.....
how can this just be IBS?
what tests can be done to test further?
saw a doctor yesterday and she thought i had celiac.... but did no tests. just gave me the dx...
i just feel horrible. all over my body. no one can find what is wrong.
i have accepted i will likely live in pain with no relief forever.
