Here are the particulars. This has been going on for 3 weeks now since I went to the ER with what I though was some sort of blockage or something due to excruciating abdominal pain and fever.
-sed rate 78 (was 67 last week)
-ANA--not back yet
-low grade fever -100.2 for several days. no longer have fever
-intense stomach/abdominal pain for days, nausea, loss of appetite
-rash almost like hives on both arms, side which popped up and went away within 3 days.
-skin sensitive to the touch.
-sleep a lot.
colonoscopy, endoscopy, barium test for small intestine, CT scan all looked good.
Gastroenterologist says it is some sort of autoimmune disorder. A nurse friend thinks it's SLE. Meanwhile, Dr.(gastroenterologist who ordered tests) has not returned calls and I am really frustrated. I cannot bear another weekend of feeling this way. Any thoughts other than to find a new Dr. I need something today!!
