    IBS and Crohns or Pancreatitis????

    I was diagnosed with crohns 5 and a half years ago. When i was diagnosed i had a severe pain in my upper abdomen inbetween my ribcages and a pain lower down on the right. they said that the upper pain was prob ulcers... so that was that

    ive had the upper pain a bit through out the years. the past 8 months ive had it quite severe. my gp gave me protium which started to help and then stopped. ive had 2 endoscopies and both have been fine. i was on steroids for 6 weeks which got rid of it but it came back once it was finished. ive had a cat scan and it came back perfect - but i dont think the cat scan went up high enough.

    its getting to the stage where the pain is so bad i cant sleep. its there pretty much all the time, a little bit but when i eat its really severe where i need to bend over and push in where the pain is and hold my breath. i feel nauseous, i feel bloated when its really bad. when the pain gets quite severe it goes around my right ribcage and into the top/middle of my back

    i went to my crohns doc on wednesday and he says its definitely not my stomach, that it might be ibs but he also wants to rule out gallstones and pancreatitis. ive looked up gallstones before but never thought of pancreatitis and the symptoms are similar to what i have

    i guess im just wondering if anyone else out there has gone through something similar to this, or has been diagnosed with pancreatitis or gallstones, so they can let me know what their pain was like
    or is there anyone out there with ibs and crohns? i didnt know you could get both... i thought it was one or the other.

    thanks guys

    Hi Irishgal

    Upper pain between the rib cages (sterum) can also be colitis. This is the usual place for pain with colitis and also it causes constipation.

    Also the pain could be coming from the large again this causes pain in the upper area and down the right side. but remember that with crohn's the pain is generally around the right side and goes in the back.

    The reason why you are in pain when you move m ay be because your bowel is inflammed or narrowed.

    I have crohn's and my pain is always down the right side but lower down. Also i suffer from constipation when my small bowel becomes narrow and an obstruction occurs.

    I am waiting to have surgery down very soon as my small bowel has narrowed.

    have you had a barium meal done?? this will show up any narrowing in the bowel.

    Hopefully the barium will show something up and put an end to the pain.

    Where do you have crohn's?
