You say that you have had this condition for over a year now.
Other than the severe abdominal pain
, if you are also experiencing
bouts of diarrhea or constipation
, we can think of different conditions.
But, I am concerned about the finding of inflammation, patchy in
nature in your intestines, probably in your small bowel. Your colonoscopy
was negative according to you. One condition that would show these
types of changes is "Crohn's Disease ". This is more common between
the ages of teens to the thirtty plus, although can occur at any age.
Depending on the extent of small bowel involvement, the symptoms
can vary. Diarrhea, weight loss
due to malabsorption
, vitamin and
mineral deficiencies can be present. Anemia, joint pains, skin and eye
problems also are associated with this. If you have a family history
of Crohn's or ulcerative colitis
, your risk is greater to have this.
You did not mention any x-ray studies , like upper GI and small bowel
x-rays (Not CT-Scan).
How about all your blood tests ? Stool studies ?
We need more information. If the pain is severe enough that you need
strong pain killers, I think you need additional work up.
Hope to hear from you with more information.
Wish you well.
