I am being treated for a severe crohns flare (the worst since I was diagnosed). The inflammation is not very high and has a uc pattern. Normally my doctor puts me on predinsone but this time he prescribed entocort along with canasa and a cortifoam enema. I am already taking 6mp.
My question is has anyone had success with the entocort pulling them out of bad flare? And how long did it take? I am also worried that the mirena IUD that I had put in is the cause of this as the day I had it put in I had my regular crohns blood work done and it was the best it has ever been in 5 years and now 3 weeks later I feel worse than I have in 5 years!!! This flare literally came on in a matter of 2 days. My symptoms are the normal with fever, sever pain, no appetite, unable to hold anything in, and severe bloody diarhea.
Any response would be awesome.
Diagnosed with UC in July of 2003 then diagnosed with Crohns in August of 2006.
