The purpose of this post is to let you know my experience so others who can not get a diagnosis might get there faster.
I have had a bad gut my entire life. I have had three series of extensive tests. The first two came back IBS. I have had an upper gi track, colonoscopy, promethus blood work and something else where i had to drink barium. Although there was an indication of crohns nothing was definative.
I just got the results from the Pill Cam and the doctor showed me pictures of ulcers through out the small bowel. There is no way to get this diagnosis without the pill cam and I wish I had it years ago. This is my experience and I hope this rings true for at least one other person so they can get a definative diagnosis also. If your doc recommends it I suggest go for the pill cam.
On another note this Predisone is really playing games with my head. I have a short fuse any ways and I feel like I am really on edge. I am all over the map mentally. This is not fun. I have a lot of folks that work for me and I am scared right now of lashing out at them. I warned my wife and daughter that I might blow but I know that neither will be able to se it is the meds not me if anything happens (they are both great but very sensitive). I guess this is one more case where I will enduldge when I can and suck it up when I can't.
