Well, my symptoms have been going on since about the end of April. I started having diarrhea and a sharp pain in my back on the right side (lower). I ignored it and promised to go to the Dr., which I did once the end of May came and I had a 103 fever, vomiting, worse diarrhea, and became dehydrated. I was put in the hospital for four days. The docs said they thought it was Crohn's disease. I had a dye CT done, with nothing exceptional shown. Then I did an upper GI, and drank a bunch of barium. Still had docs puzzled, but still thought I had Crohn's and wanted to do a colonoscopy. So afterward (about a month), still having diarrhea (bloody) and lots of abdominal pain, I went to a GI doc. He did the colonoscopy and found one inflamed polyp, everything else was fine. The doc put me on Prednisone, which seemed to help the symptoms. I had blood work and the sed rate was about a 12 and I am 32. Last week I had a small bowel function and stomach study done, with more barium. Results were fine. Now, I have started the bloody diarrhea AGAIN with stomach cramps and on Monday, he wants me to start reducing my dose of meds, which had seemed to help some of the symptoms. I have also lost about twenty five pounds in the last two months, about six-ten pounds now every two weeks! Also, I have mouth ulcers. The doc did mention that there is a possibility of Sprue (sp?) Any advice or suggestions. I think I've looked every place on the Internet for possible ideas.:confused:Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
