5 years ago I had to be hospitalized for ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura). Now I am still iron deficient and my body does not make B12- I have to take shots every 2 weeks. I had my gallbladder out 2 years ago due to pain and abnormal HIDA, but my symptoms stayed away only 2 weeks. Now I have constant burning in upper gastric area with diarrhea, with or without food, bloating, and my lower abdomen feels crampy and comes and goes. Constantly fatigued, and sleepy. Never feel good. Now I have developed sporatic joint pain and mouth sores. Seeing GI who is treating me for ulcers and the med helped about 4 months, but pain is gradually starting back. He refuses to do colonoscopy or UGI but wants to do ERCP to check for gallstones left in my duct. I think Crohn's. Any opinions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
