I am 27 years old. I was diagnose with Lupus at the age of 21. I've been on dialysis and had a Kidney Transplant(from my mother)June 3, 1999. About 2 years ago I had to have exploritory abdominal surgery. I had vasculites of the intestines(I think its spelled correct). They didn't have to remove anything.I was put on Imuran and all was well for the most part. Sometimes I would get pain in my stomache after eating. It has gotten to where 99% of the time I eat it happens. Sometimes wright away, 10 minutes later or any time. It doesn't happen with any perticular food. I can drink water and it will happen, I'll eat something one day and I get another time I won't. I have had the camera in my stomache, x-rays of my intestings, and a sonogram of my abdomen and everything is normal. Has anyone else experiance this?? I am at a loss. Sometimes I am afraid to eat because of the pain. It lasts from 2 minutes to 15 minutes.
