Hi, I have been having stomach symptoms for 3 years now and doctors have suspected that it could be Crohns. However some have just said it’s IBS.
My symptoms include every few months I get this very intense stomach pain that feels like a deep burning pain in the center of my abdomen that eventually moves to the lower right side. The severity of the pain lasts a few days but it leaves me feeling extremely ill for at least a month after. With the pain I get diarrhoea or undigested food in my stools, and occasional blood and mucus. After these symptoms disappear I feel near enough fine except constant nausea.
Other symptoms include
-Pain all over body
-Feeling week and shaky
Over the years I have had tests my bloods have shown I am anemic. My faecal Calprotectin has shown that I have high levels of inflammation even when I don’t have symptoms but the colonoscopy and MRI of the small bowel have come back negative. However I had a CT scan and it showed slight thickening in the Cecum and a slight build up of faeces. Appart from that nothing else has shown up and I am really confused as to what is going on. The doctor suggested that it could be a mild case of crohns but I have to wait to see a Gastroenterologist but because most of the tests have come back negative they seem to not be bothered. Does this sound like crohns and what should I do?
