Okay here's my last 8 months. Went to the ER in December when RLQ pain, this resolved itself within hours after getting just plain fluids. Never had that pain since than. Was given Pentasa, than 2 months of Prednisone. Than had an allergic reaction to Remicade after third infusion. Than they thought something was wrong with my gallbladder. However, this ended up being a muscle pull, and the pain is all gone. I've gone for a second opinion. My small bowel follow through they say shows old damage of Crohn's, but no inflammation. Just had an upper endoscopy which shows nothing suggestive of Crohn's. Awaiting results of the biopsies taken. Could this be celiacs disease? They tested me before but negative, but want to do another test of that. The GI doctor said, until they can get something under the microscope indicative of Crohn's, they don't want to treat me with the other drugs. I currently am in no pain. Anyone have any ideas?
Diagnosed with CD in December 2007. ER wanted to take appendics out!
