I am a 25 year old woman who suffers from various health conditions including severe hypermobility syndrome, fibromyalgia, raynauds disease, somatoform pain disorder, flat feet/plantation faticis, chronic repeat UTIs, IBS and iron/b12/folic acid deficiencies. I also suffer from dermatitis, loss of nails, cold sores, mouth ulcers and anal fissures. I am currently under investigation for diabetes as have low blood sugar levels regularly.
I have been having problems with my bowels for years and was diagnosed with Ibs at 15. Of late my stools have become impacted on a regular basis and I can got upto 10 days without going to the toilet. I have been passing hard round ball shaped stools which are coated in mucous for quite some time.
I have been seeing a GI due to malabsorption and calproction 180 and in august had a colonoscopy/endoscopy. Endoscopy was normal and colonoscopy was normal up to limit of insertion. Upon reaching my small bowel the specialist could not obtain access and I was in excruciating pain. I was referred for an mri scan.
One week ago I was admitted to hospital in agony with a very distended stomach and pain from right at the middle of my bottom rib down my right hand side.
4 days on I took moviprep which cleared any faeces. This was horrendously painful and I also vomited throughout.
I am still having periodic spasms which are causing me to find it difficult to breathe and feel I have heartburn and shortness of breath.
My c related protein levels have doubled from
102-205 (not sure if this is high/low?)
I had an mri scan this morning as am still in hospital and will hopefully get results tomorrow but I am looking for some advice as to whether this sounds like crohns?
Thanks in advance
