So, although I was a little nervous I took a road trip w/ my family. I actually did really good. (It was my 5 year old that had d but only for a few hours). We had a great time. The colazal seems to be working. So I'm so thankful for that.
The bad news is this: My body HURTS! But only when I stop. As long as I am moving I do ok, but then when I sit or lay down my legs - especially my knees - kill me. So I took one of the vicodin that the doctor gave me for pain. What I wanted was for it to work like aleve and make the pain go away. What I discovered was that the pain is still there but I can move through it. Oh, and then it kept me up for 2 hours in the middle of the night. They tested me for RA back in oct/nov last year and said that I was only 1 above normal so they weren't worried, should I press for a referral or are they just going to give me more of these types of drugs.
Also, my hair seems to be thinning again --- i've only been on the colazal for a few weeks was wondering if I should keep taking it and see what happens or if I should go back to the GI yet again???? I've had thinning hair with the pentasa and asocal too. I started taking 1 mg folic acid everyday about 2 weeks ago.
Thanks guys -- I missed you while I was on vacation. HW is addictive!

One blessing that came with my Crohns: I thank God for each day that I can get out of bed and take care of my girls and my home.
