There was no need to edit your post, I completely understand that those are the possibilities I face. I have always been a realist, but unfortunately dealing with this I now tend to lean towards the negative side of things because I can really say it has been over a year I have not felt like myself and I am scared that I will never. I once was that person that people could lean on for support and I would always be there for them when I was needed I enjoyed helping and volunteering. Now I don't even have the energy to do anything or the drive.
I honestly hope I have something curable as well. But as you mentioned I honestly believe I have crohn's but at this point I am starting to believe I might have something else as well, possibly IBS or some other underlying factor. My first doctor said it was crohns because of the ulcers, my second said NO, my third said possibly. I have been told one thing then told another, it seems it never stops.
To be honest with you all I would just like to be finally told what is going on so I can start to deal with it right.
I met a friend of mine on Thursday at my family doctors office and she is going through the same thing as me. Her Gi said she doesnt have crohns but the pathology report states otherwise. So as I am, she is at a lost. She requested a referral to a doctor who is 4 hours away.
So I do know that I am not the only one out there who is going through this, trust me I am far from selfish. I just want answers and to start to either know that I won't get better or there is hope that I will. Right now I don't know what to think or believe or to do to take care of myself.
As for the medications I want to try, I'd like him to try entocort or something mild I am hoping that it would not be Remicade or Humira just yet. Or like you said anitspasmic drugs. My doctor on Thursday prescribed me Limotil but I am scared to take it. I have some Modulon home from when I was on it with the IBS and I tried a few yesterday and today some of the pain is subsiding, not sure if I like the idea of taking antispasmic drugs with the possibility of crohns. My first doctor said it wasn't a good combination. But I will ask more question on my next visit him, if the modulon helps a bit maybe asking for something stronger might help. I will bring this up with my GI as well.
Thank you all for your posts. The support is welcomed and needed.
