I have been exploring my treatment possibilities. I don't know what to do. I have CD and I have been getting horrible migraines every two weeks for four days at a time. I have missed a lot of work. I am currently on 30 mg Prednisone. I have been on it for four weeks and I failed my taper. I went down to 25 and went from solid stools back to only D. I am in constant pain, but I can deal with it. My problem is, the side effects of prednisone. It is no longer working and the side effects are horrible. My doctor can't fit me in for three weeks which means I am on the prednisone at least three more weeks before I can try to taper again. I don't know what treatment to do next. Do I just deal with the pain and discomfort? My whole life is suffering and this has been going on since last October. The migraines put me in the hospital and they won't even give me pain meds anymore. I was in the emergency room on Thursday vomiting uncontrollably and he gave me nausea meds, but not pain meds. Please give me advice? Do I ask about imuran, remicade, or humira, or are there other treatments?
