Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it. My pain is about 2 inches left of my belly button. It has been dull for over a month. When I landed in the ER a few wks back, the pain was so bad that I could not move---I thought I was about to die. I had this similiar pain about 5 yrs ago, same spot, ended up in the ER. Since the initial time I had it I have had the dull pain on and off.
Can a flare come on with stress? In May,I found out my Dad has PC and has very little time to live--a few days after the news the pain started.
My bone/joint pain is not really a stiffness, its a quick jab or it feels like my bones are being crushed or sliced. I get it in my feet (toes too), ankle, fingers, hands and the jabs to my spine. They last for a second or over an hour. This isnt what I would think arthritic pain would be like? Also, my joints are cracking like crazy--I counted 15 times in 10 minutes, this came on shorty after I started to get the pain. I am 33 and feel like I am 93. I get buzzing in my feet here and there too...so who knows.
So anyway, GI suggested that perhaps this is related to possible Colitis and I am just curious how similiar of an experience others have had with joint pain and UC. I have to send some samples to the lab (that should be interesting) before the colonoscopy so he can rule out a virus first.
Also, just want to note I am going to get tested for Lyme and am also going to see a neurologist tomorrow.
