Hello! A bit confused what is going on NOW. I have an appointment with my GI next week but oh my goodness I'm not sure I'm going to make it. This disease keeps you on your toes!
I don't know what to think....has anyone had a flare up without blood, mucous and urgency?
I started having intense abdominal pain on the 26th, not like my usual flare up at all. Felt almost like labor pains even, and I though maybe I was just stressed or something. That was it seriously...just this pain that would come and go. Well, a few days later I had some diarrhea that turned straight to water, but no blood, no mucous, no urgency...none of the usual symptoms...it was more like my body was just getting everything out and then it was over. The pain got so bad I went to the ER because of course it was Memorial day. They just said my colon was a little inflamed and my WBC high and follow up with my doctor. PCP pretty much said the same, gave me a few days of Pred that I didn't really want and some pain meds that I know I shouldn't take. I stayed home and rested a few days, started feeling better, now last night the pains came back even waking me up!!! I'm trying to get through work day and when they come I feel like I'm going to pass out......but they only last 3-5 minutes. When they stop, I feel fine, just tired. For the most part I'm using the bathroom like normal...in fact the last 2 months everything's looked more normal than it has in years.
I just heard today a client I work closely with is being tested for c.diff....but I don't have a fever and haven't really had diarrhea.
It's so tempting to take the pain pills but I know that won'y solve the problem....wish the GI could see me sooner.
