Hello costasI had gastro-intestinal problems. I'm not diagnosed with Crohn disease but I had symptoms very similar to crohn (excluding diarrhea and bleeding). There was times before, when I was completely sure that I have Crohn disease, but godness it went away (a least for now).. who knows?? ;).
I'm replaying to you because when I was reading your post, it was as if it was written by me, same exact (mild) symptoms (intestine, eyes, back, kidney, knee & maybe hart) & sequence , however I didn't have low grade fever but the first month or two I was suffering from a feeling of hot upper head after 3 hours from eating that no doctor was able to explain, I took 3 antibiotics courses each 20 days that I recover fully by the end of the course then relapse & start all over again, unfortunately I developed food sensitivity that limited my food intake greatly
I found Specific Carbohydrate Diet to be helpful (avoid trigger)
Also I use Boswellia Extract that I think is helping (controls immune system as effective as medications) http://www.fourfoldhealing.com/Boswellia.htm
now, assuming it is any of these overlapping conditions (Crohn's, Reactive arthritis or Ankylosing Spondylitis) all of it are Autoimmune diseases thus I didn't try any immune system stimulants (Yet)
I would like to know your progress with the immune enhancement path - hopefully to the better
I also research allot of new treatments in this direction like Low Dose Naltrexone http://www.lowdosenaltrexone.org/
or Marshall Protocol http://www.marshallprotocol.com
hopefully someone can confirm it's benefits for our condition.
