Hi Im hoping someone can give some insight into what may be wrong with me.
First of all i have crohn's, i say this incase it is related to what is wrong with me.
yesterday i ended up in the emergency department with bad chest pain and unable to breathe properly. They done a chest x ray and this came back clear, they done some bloods and my white blood count came back high so they put me on antibiotics.
Anyway last night the chest pains came back, i started getting all clammy, sweat pouring off me and then i was sick. Throughout the night i was being sick and am still being sick today.
I feel really rough and also i have had a painful headache since yesterday which wont go away.
I also have Crohn's, and have been having some unusal discomfort along the bottom of the rib cage, some nausea, along with some flank pain. Blood work came back okay, I have an appointment on Wednesday with my GI doc. Crohn's does cause some unusal things to happen.
Hope all goes well with you and keep me posted. Try to enjoy the holiday!

It's true what you say crohn's can cause so many symptoms and illnesses it's silly!!!
I found out today that i have lupus/pleurisy type illness brought on by the azathioprine medication for my crohn's. so i have come off them now, they have messed my immune system and caused me to get a potentially dangerous illness!!!
Im seeing my specialist nurse tomorrow and im going to see what she says about it all.
let me know how you get on with your appointment on wednesday.
I was wondering if by any chance you got a copy of your blood tests?
Eosinophils in the blood willmake the white count rise and if they just look at the white count it will look like you have an infection.... If they did a diff you can tell which white cells are raised... If it is the eosinophils, then there may be something other than an infection going on...
The problem you mention with chest pain is something that happens to people who have Eosinophilic Esophagitis sometimes.... They say the pain is horrific but nothing is visible on xray... A biopsy of the tissues in the esophagus will later prove that they have EE....
