Steroids are not normally used for IBS. They are used for Crohn's disease and IBD and I think Diverticulitis/diverticulosis but I remember once mentioning it to my Doctor and he said not for IBS. I have it at home for lung flareups and thought it would help.

I am just trying to get an idea of what my pcp was thinking.
Some one on my ms forum,had mentioned crohns.
Which is sounding more like whats been going on here.

It really does sound like Crohns as there are definite attacks with Crohns. I believe there are some new meds for it. I think Remicade is used for it even though it is not approved for it. Crohn's is very painful. Stress is a big factor is Crohn's.

I would definitely go back to your doc and ask about the steroids. It is definitely not normally used for IBS. If s/he suspects Crohn's, then you should be going through a battery of tests. Have you been scoped?
