My GI won't give me pain meds either, even when I am so crippled over I can hardly function at all. So I go to my PCP and get them, or from my rheumy. It feels a little like I'm going around the system but if you can't function, you can't function. Tylenol might as well be tic-tacs when I'm at my worst.
**32 year old female; Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001; diagnosis changed to Crohn's disease in 2009
**Asacol (4000 mg daily), 6-MP (100 mg daily), Prednisone (30mg daily...for now), Nexium (40 mg daily), Flagyl (500 mg daily), Sulfasalazine (1000 mg daily), and getting ready to start Humira
**Thankfully only two major flare-ups...2001 and 2009. Hoping to have another 8 years in between the next one (sadly, I do know there will be a next one).
