I am in such a horrible Crohns flare and I just need to know that I am going to be ok and that my doctor
is going to listen to me when I call him tomorrow. I'm scheduled for a scope but not until Jul 3rd. I
am going to tell him tomorrow that if he doesnt get me in sooner I am taking myself to the emergency room.
I cant keep functioning like this. My joints hurt, my lower back is killing me, my upper joints, fingers, elbows
hurt. I cant eat and Im on 40mg of prednisone. Ive dropped 7 pounds in the past 2 weeks. Im really
sick you guys and my doctor is not listening to me. But Im suppose to be with the best doctor around.
He was on vacation last week so I've had to deal but I am calling first thing tomorrow morning. I just
cant keep going like this its awful!! Its flashback to my big flare 8 years ago that landed me
in the hospital. So if I have to take myself there this time then I will. Maybe then he will listen to me.
I'm not even going to be able to go to work tomorrow.
