View Full Version : Anyone else have these symptoms?

08-09-2013, 12:13 PM
I was diagnosed with Lupus 7 months ago. I have all the similar symptoms that others have with Lupus, but I bleed rectally. I bleed more than a month at a time. I have had a total hysterectomy, 7 colonoscopies with in 2 years. They can't find any signs of Crohn's, IBS, or any inflamation. I stop bleeding when I have to take predisone for the Lupus. My son was diagnosed with Crohn's when he was 6 (3years ago). I was just wondering if anyone else has bled and what to do to stop it? I appreciate any imput on this matter! Thank you!

Hi SBradford,

Welcome to WHL.
I have not heard of anyone bleeding rectally, but it may be a autoimmune thing as well, because it stops when you take the prednisone.
It looks like the doctors are doing what they can, to find the culprit.
Have you ever googled it?
I hope you can find answers soon.

Hi Sbradford, My son has Ulcerative Colitis and Chron's and he bleeds when he is flaring. He is responsive to Prednisone although the doctors only gave it to him once and won't give it to him again as they say it has too many side effects. I'm so glad, I wish they would of given me an option or educated me on the results of it. Anyway there are many autoimmune conditions out there that do respond to Prednisone, I know with my son his joints also hurt when he's flaring. I hope you can get answers, I know how frustrating things can get. {{{hugs}}}}

Thank you for your response! I hope all is well with your son! My son has Crohn's disease also, we have something in common with that! We will eventually figure it out! Just a little hill to get over!:)
