I’ve been ill for years but since January I’ve acquired a terrible right lower side abdomen pain that reaches to my belly button. I have calprotectin of nearly 400 and anemia. I’ve had a clear colonoscopy, all my organs are good including appendix and ovaries. Clear of infections and nsaids The GP has given me 5mg x6 a day as I wait for a pillcam endoscopy.
My questions are, does this sound like crohns ? if it is how long does Pred take to ease my symptoms ? My mum has crohns also but is on pentasa and been in remission for 20 years. I’m petrified as I’m so poorly with impaction too. Thankyou x
