    After several tests, my GP thinks it might be fibro (have all the classic symptoms).

    However, the past year I have been struggling with abdominal/lower back problems: mainly pain in the lower pelvis, radiating to the back and down my whole leg (it can be one side or the other); inconsistant shape and consistancy of BM, pain that feels like menstrual cramping.

    I am scheduling a colonoscopy for next week and it is making me nervous that it is something more than Fibro...if this is negative, then hopefully insurance will cover the abdominal ct scan.

    Has anyone else feel like this?

    id skip the colonoscopy and get the ct scan. ask if anything seems swolen or enflamed. my ct scan showed an enlarged spleen and enflamed lymph nodes and an unusually large ammount of blood vessels there.

    I am glad to hear that this could be related to Fibro...I get extremely worried that all this is a sign of cancer that hasn't been caught yet. I guess I will have to keep testing until they run out of tests.
