About a year and a half ago I got left side upper abdominal pain under ribs, I thought it was my colon but the surgent suggested gallstones. He said it would be cheaper to check for stones before going in for a colonoscopy. So of course the ultrasound showed stones. I had no insurance so I applied for assistance at hospital an got approved 7 months later and got the surgery. With in the 7 months my symptoms got worse, nauseous every morning was a major one an took tremadols for pain but they helped me better for nausea. I would go long periods of constipation then long periods of diarrhea but no in between.
I got the stones removed and all symptoms still occurred, I got really bad acid reflexes so I got a scope and nothing so we did a CT scan and still nothing. At least that checked me off the list of pancreatics. The CT scan was 5 months ago and now when I have diarrhea I see blood and mucas. The mucas actually was always there. After a week or two of diarrhea then I'll go one or two weeks of constipation. I get random fevers and feel ill, I just recently started getting joint pain. The pain started in elbow an had no idea what it was so I brushed it off, then regulated to my wrist to where I could not pick up heavy objects. I already been to docs back and forth and they are bugged with me to a point they just give me tremadols bc they know I can not afford the colonoscopy. The assistance only covered the gallbladder surgery. Also last two months I've been getting canker sours on my tounge. Every time one goes away another one appears. The joint pain left, but today I have fever, body aches and feeling unwell.
Is this crohns? When I read the google description it only refers to diarrhea and says when people get flare up they get joint pain and canker soars, but my joint pain and cankers soars appear even when I don't have diarrhea.
