Hello guys! Hope all is going as well as can with you guys. I havn't posted in awhile. Shortly after my bowel resection, I was found to have a thyroid mass that was cancer (just took iodine pill today) and something called Chiari Malformation! Whew! How much does God think I can handle? :)

Ever since having my thyroid removed I have HIGH blood pressure. The highest being 155/115. I am now on my 2nd different medicine as it gives me explosive diarrhea within 2 hours of taking these pills! Does anyone take a blood pressure medicine that they do well on with Crohns?

DX in 2007. Was on Asacol for almost 2 years and the Entocort for 6 months. That has now stopped working so currently on Prednisone while trying to get up the courage to take Remicade.

I take Cardizem....I don't experience anything different taking it. I stopped taking it for about 2 weeks to see if I saw any difference.

I take two blood pressure meds, Lisinopril and Dialtizem. I have no side effects from either other than lowering my BP. Good luck!
