So I finally had my appointment with the GI after my scopes. She didn't take biopsies.. saying she didn't feel the need since there was no crohn's showing, not even scare tissue. (But she believes I have crohn's just the humira has put it into remission)
She can't tell me if i have endo or not, I still have to see the gyno about that. But she wrote a note to the gyno (I must bring) saying to check me for endo and that I have crohn's.
She stated, if it isn't endo, it's my crohn's flaring up when I get my periods.. saying I may just have way to much hormones. I obviously can't tell right now.. the difference if it's endo or crohn's. I have no issues with my stomach for the rest of the month. I can even eat corn!!!
But when I do have my period, full blown flare (or feels like it anyways) My question is for people who do have endo.. Do you get arthritis while you get your period? Because I do, would endo cause arthritis, or is it just CD that would cause arthritis when your in a flare?
The GI also said if it's not the endo, it's clearly my crohn's and regardless I have to stop my period. If Depro isn't an option for me, and neither is birth control pills. What is left for me to take to stop my period?!
(Depro flared my crohn's. I suffer from migraines, if I ever want a kid, I can't take the pills.. something to do with taking both together can make you infertile)
