Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
Diagnosed with severe Crohn's colitis in May 2005--spread to ileum and small intestine as of April 2008. Have taken Imuran, Remicade, TPN, Colozal, Entocort, Flagyl, PamineForte, Cipro, Dicyclomine, Prednisone, Asacol, Prevacid, and the list goes on. Currently on Remicade every 8wks, 40mg Pred, Pentasa.
I have one foot symptom….
I have numbness in my left big toe. I have been off Imuran for a week so it could have been that or the pentasa or entocort.
I read that low b12 can cause that and I was tested at 202 for b12 when 200 is low. So far the numb toe has not gotten worse and not sure if it is better.
I am hoping the stopping of Imuran or when I finally get to stop entocort and Pentasa when the humira kicks in will make the numb toe problem better.
I also have hair loss and am noticing it more lately so I am very anxious to stop pentasa just in case it was also causing hair loss.
