Hello! I'm posting as I could really do with hearing other people's experiences.
I have suffered with abdominal pain on/off for a year or so. In November this got much worse.
I now have upper abdominal pain everyday and well as digestive problems plus unintended weight loss.
I am on Lansoprazole and Solpadol everyday. Though managed to keep my pain killers to around 3-4 a day other wise I'm a zombie!
I have had an endoscopy, came back with nothing apart from gerd. Had an ultrasound, that came back with an all clear apart from a small cyst on my spleen which would not cause the pain. I have had an MRI which was requested by the specialist, and waiting for the official results in a week. But I went to my gp last week who could see the results on the system. He said there's nothing sinister, I may have policystic ovaries, and it showed I was constipated in my large intestine. I hoping to get more detailed answers at my appointment next week.
Since I have had the MRI I have found out some family medical history and my auntie has crohns.
I suffered with juvenile arthritis as a child and I get a lot of aches and pains now but would never though to have linked them.
My GP said that crohns wouldn't have been seen on the MRI and that he suspects when I go next week and tell them family history that they may do a colon oscopy.
Had anyone not been diagnosed through MRI?
I'm in constant pain and not a work. Just could do with some answers
Thanks for listening
