Hope someone out there can give me some advise;
I have been batteling a Chrons flare now for over 2 yrs. In that yrs time I have been to to ER many times and admitted to the hospital about 3 times. Just got out a week ago Saterday, but not for Chrons persay but I think related. Was taken from work in ambulance with chest pains. They are saying it is either stress or acid reflux. Well back to my question, I have been off work so much this past year, and have gone to work days that I feel awful (but for fear of loosing my job I go in) I was wondering how hard is it to get SSD? I have Chrones, IBS, depression, and restlessleg. I am also under doctors care for a spot that was removed from my breast that was found to have pre cancer cells. Yes too much I agree. I try to keep my stress leval low, but I find that with my job, kid, and illness it is hard. Sould I try for Social Security Dissability? Do the GI docs usually say in these cases the the patient needs it? I have not really talked to GI doc about this, yet? Anyhone else out there on disibility with Chrons? Was it hard to get. I don't want to quit work but If it will help me and my condition, maybe it is what is best.

Diagnoced with Crohn's in 1999. Battling with it up and down ever since. Resection of my Terminal Ilium in 2000. Meds seem to change alot lately. But have been on predizone, endacort, pentasa, remicade, 6-mp, also do B-12 injection every month.( 2008 ) Well now they say I have IBS also, took me off pentasa, took away my B-12 injections, put me on Fiber. Still take the 6-MP for the Chrons now taking 4 green pills a day for the IBS. Can it get anyworse If Chrons was not bad enough now I have IBS also............Having more troule with the IBS lately. Chrons seems to be in remission, so far........
