Hello all! I have posted on the site before when I was discussing Remicade then Humira....both meds did nothing except keep my Crohn's a flarin' in addition to leaving me with some annoying side effects. Now the docs thought it was a good idea that I try Entocort again...and it has been working for a little while...I am anemic again and have been getting a l of sleep but this morning I awoke with a pounding headache, some cheast pain, severe leg and body aches and shooting pain in my stomach and lower back. Needless to say I couldn't drag myself to work and here I am. I am wondering is this normal --- do I need the hospital or should I try to man it out in bed?

Thanks a lot guys.

Sorry you are not feeling well.

Trust your instincts, and head to ER, or call ambulance, if your body tells you to.

I hope you get on some iron supplements soon, being anemic is so horrible, and it could be responsible for "a pounding headache, some cheast pain, severe leg and body aches and shooting pain in my stomach and lower back"
