many years ago they tested me for crohns by ct scan and told me once before I may have crohns but then when they did the colonoscopy they said no so I was happy. I went on with my business.
well fast forward to today. I been having severe back pain and muscle spasms. many different diagnoses and treatments and nothing is working. I go to the pain management dr and they try me on gababpentin which I told them wouldn't work cause I already tried it but they insisted. so two weeks later im still in severe pain so I go back and the nurse practitioner looks through my medical history. apparently when I went to the er a year or so back they did a ct scan due to stomach cramps and apparently found evidence of crohns disease as well as a fibroid tumor in my bladder. yet they didn't tell me. so I have to get a ct scan with contrast, had bloodwork, and see a gastroenterologist. and they think that is what is causing my severe back pain. also I get to get injections in my back. I am at a loss on what to do. I mean it makes some sense since it was something that was thought of before. could explain why sometimes the urge to go to the bathroom hits and I am running to the bathroom to avoid a accident. or why I seem to have the runs a lot lately. but the fact that the er didn't tell me makes me more angry everytime I think of it. had they told me prior I would have gotten the tests and who is to say I would have avoided the pain I am in now. and why after many dr appointments is a nurse practioner noticing this and not a actual doctor. I am so tired of being in pain and I just want answers. he basically told me that this is chronic, im going to be in pain for the rest of my life. at this point what is the point of life. (no I am not suicidal I am just so upset and not feeling very well at all) my husband and my daughter already feel I complain a lot and now its going to be something I have to live with
anyone have severe muscle spasms up and down their spine due to crohns and what am I in for here if they are correct. im thinking since this is my second time round with being tested for crohns that there is something to this claim.
not sure what to think or feel. can you help
