Undone: I'm happy to say I have had absolutely no symptoms of the crohns since my last surgery in 2006. I was put on Humira then Cimzia as maintenance therapy. The Humira really set off the tendon/muscle issues so I switched to Cimzia - it's not a bad now but still "there". I've been on 10 mg of pred for many months which helps but I'd like to get off it for all the usual reasons but every time I get to 7, things act up again. Thanks for your reply. I was beginning to think I was all alone out here with this particular problem!
