Last night all hell broke loose shakehead I got severe diarrhea and cramping and then afterwards I got dizzy and had back pain.. I was fine all day Saturday! I just dont get it. I am on Asacol and my hair is everywhere! All over my pillow, in the shower.. Kinda scary. I am supposed to see my GI on Thurs but I am wondering if I am diagnosed with Crohn's do they put me on any other meds besides the Asacol? I think I have to see a Rheumy for my bones too because I am almost always aching in my knees, back, shoulders and sometimes my ankle. confused

~Asacol 400mg 2 pills 3x's a day
~1 Vitamin B12 a day
~Awaiting biopsy and bloodwork results.

I have been maintained on Asacol for over 5 years now. I do have some hair shedding, but not alot. I would recommend adding some Folic Acid into your med mix, that will help to slow the hair shedding. Good luck!
