Had to go to the ER last night, the pain was horrific, and I was losing sensation in my hands & feet. X-ray showed some stool in my intestines (not constipation, just "there", according to the doctor). Abdominal ultrasound showed that gall bladder, liver, pancreas, right kidney all okay. Tech said that colon is where my pinpoint pain is.
So I got sent home, with nothing done to correct/find the problem. I was told to take some pain meds and try to schedule with gastro doctor (already have appt) and maybe rheumatologist. Sigh.
This morning, after using the bathroom, I measured my abdomen. It is now 36" around. As expected, it hurts very much, even though I am on a low dose of Vicodin.
I really really wish someone would/could figure this out. I can't stress how much it has affected me not only physically, but mentally and emotionally.
All these tests run have been negative, but it is VERY OBVIOUS that something is in there! It isn't gas (gas doesn't weigh anything), and it looked like this after I did the "GoLytely" thing for several of my GI tests.
