I have been having pain there for a few weeks now, too. Right below my ribs. My GP said it's probably a reaction in my stomach to the pred. I have been on it since I was diagnosed in January. I have been taking nexium once a day with the pred to counteract that. She told me to increase it to twice a day and now the pain has been going away. although, yesterday was also my last day of pred!! YIPPEE!! So, if that truly was the cause it should really be getting better!! Keep me in your prayers that it will stay that way!!!
Last time I only made it down to 15 mg before the pain came back. This time I have made it all the way off the taper...so far so good...
Diagnosed with crohn's in January 2008!
Currently tapering on Prednisone and on Pentasa 1000 mg 4 times a day
On Topamax twice daily for migraines
On nexium while on the prednisone (have been previously diagnosed with ulcers)
I am 27 years old and have been married for 2 years. I cannot wait to try to have children so I want to get this under control!!
