Hello all...I went to a GI today. I've had pain on right side of belly button for about 3 months. Doc wanted gallbladder looked at and abdomen ultrasound came back normal. Thought it might be problem with ovary but Gyn. ruled that out. GI and Gyn. noticed I was tender when they pressed on the right side of my stomach and they both also felt some hardness or fullness in the same area. The pain is usually to the right of navel but will go a little lower. Sometimes it'll go to the left of naval and sometimes above it. I've also had right leg pain for over a year and don't know it that's related or not. GI wants bloodwork, CT scan, endoscopy and colonoscopy. I'm so tired of tests! Do these sound like symptoms of Crohns? I also ate yogurt 2 nights ago and a couple minutes later the pain really flared up. Ate yogurt again last night and didn't have that pain. If it is Crohns what are the treatments for it. Does anyone get help from alternative meds. I do not want to go on meds for the rest of my life for this. Also for those of you who had endoscopy or colonoscopy how did you do with that? Thanks so much for any advice.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
