Snohare - my CRP really bemuses me at the moment, when I was first diagnosed after being hospitalised it was over 180, over Christmas it was 163 and I was in screaming agony, but even though its over 100 now I feel better than I have when it was lower - maybe the last flare up has just made me ridiculously tolerant to pain and I should be screaming!! Ah now immunity to pain, thats a super power I'm sure we'd all love to have! lol!
I've been on methotrexate tablets for 6 years but I think I'm just not absorbing them properly anymore and apparently the injection is a much better way of getting it, worth a try anyway before going through that horrible process of trying new drugs and fiddling about til you get the right dosage....not fun days!
I'm also quite anti-meds unless they're absolutely necessary (hence episodic infliximab) I'm sure my bodys toxic enough as it is, luckily my docs know this too so will pretty much give me anything I ask for as they know how much I hate meds! Whereas some people I know struggle to get meds from their docs and get accused of all sorts!
littlemissmuffet - I also react badly to steroids, what they do to me mentally just puts my body in distress and makes everything worse, sorry about the azathiroprine, that must of been gutting as it did so well. Kind of how I feel about the infliximab, my first dose kept me in remission for 2 years, second dose in remission for 3 years, third only 6 months and fourth barely a month. I was absolutely devastated as infliximab was what I relied on and was my lifeline as it saved me from an ostomy when I was 16. But am praying that maybe just maybe this fifth one with a combination of injection methotrexate might be able to give me the relief it used to.
