Hi everybody. I am new to this site and thankful I found someone to talk. I was diagnosed with Crohn's in Sept 2001(was 14; 21 now). First, between Sept and Oct 2000(was 13) I went from 168 lbs to 123(best part Ha Ha Ha). I was throwing up everything including water because it burned. Stomach pain made me thought I was dying. I slept on my knees because laying down was torture(also hurt when sat down). Went to family doctor(Jan 01) gave me 3 meds for pain, vomiting, and diarrhea(had me knockout). He told me to go the ER and find a doctor. Took xrays, ultrasounds, catscans, colonoscopy(woke whole time ), and lots of bloodwork. It started with an ucler, then Inflammtory Bowel Syndrome, then Crohn's Disease. I have been on Asacol, 6mp, Prednisone(3x), on second round of Remicade, Flagyl, Cipro, Phenergan, Colazal(think there was others). I am on Metoprolol for high blood pressure and heart beating too fast. On Citalopram for my anxiety and depression. Started taking fish oil capsule for my high cholesterol. I had 2 colonscopy this year because the first time I was too tight and inflame to go any further. And I also had EGD(upper GI endoscopy) on the same day(woke up trying to take the tube out my throat . I was told in Oct I might need surgery, so Remicade(only crohn's meds I am on) was increased form 500 to 1, 045 mg. I appreciate any comments or stories. I am just really thankful to have find this wonderful site.
