Pain is one of the worst things to deal with with this disease because I've found that doctors are so unwilling or unknowledgeable about how to treat it. Best advice, go to a pain management specialist or pain management clinic to have them help you with the pain, and see your GI to figure out how to get the pain to go away through IBD treatment. Good luck!
**32 year old female; Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001; diagnosis changed to Crohn's disease in 2009 (but still only impacts colon)
**Asacol (4800 mg daily), 6-MP (100 mg daily), Prednisone (8 mg daily...for a few more weeks), Flagyl (250 mg every other day), Nexium (40 mg daily)
**Thankfully only two major flare-ups...2001 and 2009. Hoping to have another 8 years in between the next one (sadly, I do know there will be a next one).
**GOAL of one day being immunosuppressant free...still working on my doctor on this one but I am a world traveler who desperately wants to go to Africa one day!
