Hello,
I have going through an extremely stressful time and thought I was handling it all quite well.
I am now having a lot of internal pain, I had an ultrasound today that showed nothing worrisome in the prelininary report...waiting on actual report and bloodwork to show my liver enzymes, pancreas enzymes and CBC and sedimantation rate. I have also had very light stool (sorry if that's tmi but it's one of the symptoms I am having)and that's also the reason for the bloodwork and ultrasound.
Could this be a flare?

So sorry to hear you are having a rough time of it. I can't say what is causing your pain, but here's the scoop on poop.

Pale stools may mean that the bile duct is blocked.

Yes I have signed the petition. [Smile]

So far all of my tests are coming back normal...all my bloodwork and the ultrasound looked fine.
She is thinking that it may be a virus..she doesn't think that it's Lyme b/c of the stool.
She wants me to do another scan where they inject a nuclear dye into me to "test" my gallbladder to see if it's functioning properly. I really don't want to take that..so I asked if I could sit a few days and see if it's a virus and this passes.
I feel a lot like I did when I was dealing with Lyme a year ago...I've been doing really well and have not had any serious symptoms in months. Until possibly now...

I do hope you are pooping prettier soon and won't need the test.

And I hope you are feeling better soon too!

I know there are some "bugs" going around that are weird. And some are taking 6 weeks to get over.

Glad you didn't nuke yourself yet. Good idea to give it a bit of time.
