Gosh, sorry to bother you with so many questions.
But one thing I wanted to ask is the severity of your Crohn's.  I wanted to sort of know where you were in terms of that compared to me, if that makes sense.
Are you pretty much always flaring, bleeding, d 5-4o times a day, lathargic, nauseas, severe pain to the point where you can't walk @ times, hard keeping anything down and everything that comes with it?
Thanks so much, LOVEPINK
I have had Crohn's since I was 21 years old and I am now almost 28....

I am currently on Prednisone and have tired literally every drug available.

Unfortunately, nothing has worked for me. But I will keep on going and trying everything possible!

Also recovering from a blood clot in my lung and of course the blood thinners really messed up my bleeding from my Crohn's....

Mine is considered mild most of the time. It's had some sever flare up's, like when I had my sever bleed. I'd consider my last flare pretty sever too, since I had so many complications outside of my intestines. But I've mostly always been able to control it just with Asacol, and I have more time then not when I'm not flaring. I've also have yet to had any resection type surgeries. So I'd say it's mild, with it's moments of moderate to sever.
Diagnosed with Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Just finished tapering off Prednisone *YEAH*, Asacol, Questran, Toprol XL (for high blood pressure).
