the methotrexate has just stopped working. I don't understand and I am so frustrated right now. My bowel is going crazy and I dont know what to do. I will no longer touch Pred or 6mp ever again. I just started this in October and have recently started the shots. I had my first dose as a shot and then went to pills, which were ineffective so that why i am doing shots again, but still not even a little bit of relief.
It helped the first two weeks, but isnt anymore. I want to try LDN, but my docs here in Canada won't even consider because there isn't enough data and research on it and crohn's. Grrrrrrrrr so frustrated.
