Re: Could this be Crohn's Disease
Thank you so much for your responses!
I guess it wouldn't be Crohn's then, because the pain comes and goes, is really bad sometimes and minor others. It's like a stabbing pain, and each time I take a breath it hurts more. I went to the doctor last week and he ran some blood tests, so I'll be finding out more tomorrow at my follow-up visit. He didn't think it was Crohn's either.
I also gained weight really fast (my doctor said I'd be losing weight from Crohn's) this last month and am extremely tired. I've been exercising and eating "right" so it's really alarming to me. I'm getting my thyroid tested too, but that wouldn't be causing pain down there...
I think the pain is more in my back, right side. When it throbs and I press on the area, it feels like it jolts forward (kind of like the feeling when your stomach drops, except this time it's a movement from back to front). I don't think it's a kidney issue because I don't have any urinating pain/problems. (I'm also getting tested for that though)
I've been gluten-free for over a year. I've been really careful with what I'm eating; I RARELY (like once every two months) eat out, so I couldn't imagine my pain being from that.
