I have Ulcerative colitis. For the last month and a half I have been experiencing a pain in my left side about
waist high. I have been in the hospital 10 days with this. I also had a high WBC count of up to 20,000 and fever up to 101.2. I have had a bunch of lab test and CTs. No one can find what is wrong with me. My GI will say on one visit that it is my UC and on the next visit the pain is too much for it to be my UC. He has flipped 3 times.
I have had an unexplained rash on my face that would last weeks to months. It would only be on my cheeks but I do not remember if it was on my nose to. I have joint pains but it has always been chalked up to UC. Before this problem started I had a rash on my leg for one day and it went away. I am anemic. I was also diagnosed with pleurisy right before all this started.
If I need to be checked for Lupus what do I do. Do I have my GP check me. I am going there on Wednesday. Is there a definitive blood test or is it a diagnosis of exclusion. Can you have pain outside of joints because the pain in my side is not in a joint.
