Hi All, im new to this so bare with me
I was diagnosed with Crohns in April of this year, although my doctor said its the mild verison.
Im on Pentasa (two tablets three times a day) and Endocort (i think thats what its called its a steroid) once a day (have been reducing my dosage each month as per docs instructions). I also take calcium supplements.
I dont really know much about this disease and would be glad to know what other people are going through, how it affects them and if they use alternative medicine.
I originally suffered with severe diaherria and fatigue and after a colonoscopy my diagnosis was made.
Since starting my medication the diaherria has stopped. However i still dont feel Well. I get really bad aches in alot of my joins, have a horrible rash across my stomach, chest and parts of my leg. I get night sweats and am constantly tired.
My doc said i have mild crohns but could all of the above be caused by that??
I just feel really lost at the moment.
Im sure my boyfriend is sick of listening to me complaining.
To be honest im nearly sick of myself complaining at this stage.
Im from Ireland also. Dont know if its relavent to say that
