Thanks for your responses. I have had a left sided dull pain (about
2 inches left of belly button) for 2 months. It got so sharp at one point I had to go to the ER, I could not move, hardley breathe it hurt so bad. Lately, I have to have a BM everytime after I eat. I have had this dull pain before, but only for a week. I have had the sharp pain many times over the past 5 yrs, but nothing as sharp as it was this time around. I also have gas as well as nasua at times but I use to attribute it to my GERD. I have been losing weight and have felt fatigued. GI thinks it could be colitis due to where my pain is etc. Note, I do not have blood in stool.
I started to get the migratory pain and cracking about a month ago. Just noticed the nail issue. Apparently both can be attributed to arthri*** and arthritis can go hand in hand w colitis.
Will see what my dx is after the scope. All my blood work etc has ruled out other items such as RA , lupus etc Also have had bone scan and ultra sound of stomach organs(kidneys, gbladder et)
