In my last post subject 'nausea', I stated that my doctor was checking my inflammation markers to see how high they were, we have yet to get the results as the pathology lab messed up and only took a CBC.. which I'm not sure what that is exactly.. but that's what the nurse said. So I'm still waiting for the results.
Although, I can tell them with out even knowing that my inflammation markers are going to be higher than normal.. I'm getting joint pains again, stomach pains, intestinal pains, I woke up three times last night to use the bathroom.. which I know for some of you, only three times would be a dream.. I typically can sleep the whole night with not bathroom trips.
I suppose I'll wait it out for that call back on Monday.. I most definitely do not want to end up in the hospital again.
Just thought I'd vent a little!

Diagnosed 9/06 with Pancolitis. The diagnosis was changed 9/20/07 to Crohn's disease.
I've had flares in my mouth, stomach, large intestine, and the duodenum.

I currently take Humira 40mg bi-weekly, prdnisone 8mg (oh so close!!), methotrexate as a weekly shot, prevacid, celebrex, foilica acid, and.. I think that's it.

Hi Kandiron,

Sorr you have to wait SO long for some help. CBC is Complete Blood Count. It tests a bunch of really common blood features.

Here is a link that will explain this common blood work:


I hope you feel better soon.

HI there, yes, I am also on Humira, pred, and flagyl , 25mg pred, and I was getting some symptoms you are haveing along with severe gas pains and bloat. I joints are sore, and have no energy either. I think it is the Humira, seems like everyone it is having same symptoms. Hope you get better, I am starting too. Watch your diet.

Don't be surprised if your test results come back in the normal range. I was recently flaring myself, but my tests results were normal. Many folks can attest to having the same results. But just because the results are normal, you can still be flaring. Sure hope you get feeling better soon. (((HUGS)))
