Ahh, the 'joy' of autoimmune dieseases....it's like roulette every minute of the day, you never know how you're going to feel.
CaMama and others,
I am sure the Advil was a huge factor in the chron's becoming active...and the first thing the G.I. said to stop/change-he knew I was taking it from the scope-even before he had records in hand or I had told him. Also in the business I am in I hear many simular first hand accounts.It was not the cause, I remember various symptoms through out my lifetime and know I had inheireted a genetic predisposition, but I am sure (in my heart anyway) self treating joint/soft tissue pain was a factor in my case. It really didn't matter, my husband suffers from syndrom X, Grave's, possibly MG, Apnea, and a host to too many others to name now, and I would have taken that or heavy narcs in order to work and raise my family.Gotta go to work now. Again thanks for doing what it is you do here it is great.
