I don't know where to even begin. I will start with for years I remember getting this weird pulling sensation in my belly button but would come and go and didn't think nothing of it. Now it's back and staying longer. It feels like someone is pulling from my belly button. I can't stand up straight it's better to bend over. Well when I went to bathroom one day the sensation came back and not only was pulling but burning and radiating to my right lower abdomen. 2 months ago when this started again I thought I had stomach bug and diarrhea for three days. Then constipation, I went to dr she gave me Amitiza and told me to try it for a month. It helped some but then went to alternating between diarrhea and constipation. Over the last few weeks my symptoms include: constant back pain right lower side, abdominal pain lower right side, black/green diarrhea, heartburn, fatigue, decreased appetite, bloating- a lot! And a headache, I don't feel good at all and wake up in the middle of the night and have had nausea lately. My dr had me get a regular abdominal X-ray that came back normal. She's referring me to a GI specialist but don't know how much longer I can stand this I have had times I just wanna go to ER but feel they will just send me home and it won't help. I'm 25 and my dad was diagnosed with Crohn's disease when he was 26. Has anyone had these symptoms, should I just suck it up and go to ER when waiting for appointment with GI specialist?
