I am in the midst of a massive Crohns flare currently and can't seem to find any relief. My GI tells me that I already have a script of maintenance percocets to curb the pain. Problem is that it's only 2 pills a day. Taking 2 at a time is barely touching the pain. The only relieve I can get is if I go to the ER. Just got my remicade so all I would need is an elevated dose or something stronger for a few days but he won't hear it. Been to the ER twice in the past two days just for pain relief. Sucks that I have to go back and forth for four hours of relief and a $100 copay. Some times I think he doesn't believe me. Ugh, really frustrating!!
Should i just bite the bullet and try to get admitted? Would hate to have a 3 day hospital stay just because i'm in pain. I know i don't have an small bowel obstruction, ive had a few and know what they feel like. This is just a really bad flare.
