For the past 6 months Ive been experiencing extreme fatigue and pain in my upper right side. About 3 months ago this worsened, sometimes to the point where I cant get out of bed in the mornings. Ive been to the doctor about it and they dismissed me with a UTI, however I believe there was something going on prior to this. I now no longer have the uti (since a month) but am still experiencing abdominal pain, nauseau, diarrhea (at least 3x a day and there's blood), weightloss (ive lost 8kg in the past 3 weeks) and fatigue. I have been gluten free for the past 2 years and I stick to my diet religiously. We think my grandma may have crohns as she exhibits similar symptoms when she eats beef, gluten or milk among other things. Also my latest blood tests show elevated CRP, EOS and a B12 deficiency. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy.
But if this is crohns I was just wondering how typical this experience is and what other people experienced when they were first diagnosed? Also a lot of what Ive been reading online is very doom and gloom - what can I realistically expect for the future if I am diagnosed? Thank you in advance!
