I have been taking Entocort for about
8 months...I just found this site and I think its a great source...I have had complications for about
4 years...Constant Diarrhea started about
three years ago...I started out taking imodium and other over the counter meds...Or I could drink three beers if I was at home and it would stop, and wouldn't have the constant feeling...Then I got a head coaching job and the stress made it worse...I found that pain meds, such as hydrocodone, would make me not even feel like I had to go to the bathroom...Every once in while I would have severe side pain...It was on the right, a little under my rib cage...It would get so intense the only thing that would stop it would be three hydrocodone...I cut push in with my thumb and it would make it feel better...Going with this problem I started going to specialists...I had ever test u can imag...Some of the test were done again by other GI doctors...Every doctor could not find anything on my test results...I went three years battling symptoms and having the feeling of having to go to the bathroom...The side pain started about
12 years ago but I was not having the diarrhea problems...They went in and took my gallblatter out...They said it has some adhensions, which was funny bc I had never had surgery before...Years after the surgury I still had the side pain at times but didn't start getting diarrhea symptoms until about
four years ago...I just recently went to another GI doctor and he diagnosed me with chron's disease...He did not find anything on any of his test...He did a test where I swallowed a pill with a camera on it and hooked a harness up to me and sent me home for 8 hours...The only thing he found was a little influmation in the middle of my stomach....I just recently went back to him and he drew some blood...Two weeks later the nurse called and said I had chron's disease and sent me some meds...I had other barium test, x-rays, upper gi's, lower gi's, and camera pill test, and some other ones....None of these test showed anything...Different doctors would say I had IBS, Colitis, and this one said i had Chron's...When Im at home and Im having the side pain I can drink 2 beers and the pain stops and the diarrhea...I know this is not a good mense of helping, but its better than taking my hydrocodone...Sorry this message was so long Im just been battling this for along time and wanted to see if anyone has the same symptoms...
