I'm freaked out and crying because I've had Crohn's like symptoms in the past 6 days and am not sure what to think or do.
Some background, have had constant loose stool for 3-4 months:
Was on the road July 2-12 eating out every meal. Drinking lot's of water. No problems while on the rally.
Thursday night, at home, ate some steak and mashed potato's (have a colostomy, food has never been a problem). about
an hour later my insides felt like they were tearing apart. Very little poop, sharp side pain, felt really gassy. Woke up to a full pouch.
Last night ate pizza, and an hour later, throwing up, sharp side pains and rolling pain in my tummy. Little poop all day. Couldn't sleep because of pain and took some Aleve around 2am then fell asleep. Woke up at 7am to a pouch full of loose poop.
Guys, im freaking. Same symptoms but now instead of uncontrollable poop, it goes into my pouch but unlike Crohn's the pain does leave most of the time. Please tell me it's not Crohn's returning, I don't think I can tolerate any more surgeries.
RX Crohn's 1999, over 30 surgeries, 3 strokes, permanent colostomy and rectum removal.
