FOr all the women out there with Crohn's, has it ever stopped your period?

More questions;

My allergies are in correlation with Crohn's. I keep going into anaphylaxis shock, literally like 5/6 times already. And, lately after everything I eat it hurts and i get some sort of reaction. It feels like when you suck in too much air and your teeth get a chill. But, it feels like that in my stomach!...
And, my crohn's has gotten worse too. I looked up the symptoms and besides the anemia and crohn's. The allergies sound more like heart disease ( shortness of breath, feels like bricks are on it,heart beating fast, skin get hot and itchy in random spots, I start sweating, and I get more anxiety with it). Can anyone help settle my mind the, doctors are taking too long!?


My blood work is terrible they say my iron count is down ( and that's with taking 2 iron pills a day) body isn't absorbing nutrition properly and my C-reactive protein count is 38! so... =( help

History ( some spelling is wrong I'm trying to type this fast and discreetly)

2 endoscopies

Pills a day
1 prilosec
3 entocort
2 iron pills
2 bosawella
1 fish oil
1 vitman B
1 licorice

And I use to do enemas but they never stay... HELP!!! PLEASEEE!!!

Crohn's has never stopped my periods, even when I lost a tremendous amount of weight and looked like a skeleton, BUT, I do know that not eating and losing alot of weight CAN stop your period. I had a friend who battled anorexia who stopped having her period when she was at her worst.

As for your allergies or whatever it is you are experiencing, you need to get to an emergency room. The symptoms you are describing do not sound like something that should be taken lightly or should be ignored. Plus, going to the emergency room will likely get something started more quickly.

Good luck to you!
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 14, have had minor flares throughout the years, but mostly kept in remission. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. Was on Pred. Dr. wants to try Humira...
Currently just take a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, and fish oil.

It can stop your period and it can also make it much worse.
I had a CRP of more then 90 at one point in time, but it is down in the 30's now and it does take a LONG time to come down.
Heart issues need to go to the ER. No kidding. Get a heart moniter on and get this recorded.
