Well I saw my doctor on Tuesday and she put me on a 1 month regimen of Entocort (9mg for 3 weeks, 6mgs for 3 days, and 3mg for 4 days), she says that if this helps me that they will officially label me with Crohn's, and also if it knocks out my acid reflux they may have to reevaluate my upper GI tract.
On the bright side tho I don't have Hyperthyroidism. (.....yet)

so I hope for relief and if it comes I'll accept my fate as one you all =)

On Entocort regimen to help my diagnosis.

Well I hope it's not something incurable like Crohn's even if it takes longer to diagnose. If it is, then welcome aboard :(

I feel a whole lot more the way I do now than I did a little while ago.

I second that...would be good to have A diagnosis, but not one of Crohn's :(

I hope they get things figured out!

Hello Auntybert,

Welcome to the Forum! I am sorry you have Crohn's Disease (CD) but at least you have found a forum with very expereienced people who are friendly and helpful. There are quite a few people here who take Humira and I am sure they will join the conversation soon. I think probiotics are fine with Humira.

Take care.

Yes Auntybert, you can take Probiotics with Humira. Probiotics shouldn't have any effect on any of our meds. And Astroboogie, I too hope its not Crohns either. Good luck!
