Where do I sart..I have had Crohns for 8 years now...I been on like 6 or 7 different medication..
Lets see since this Jan. I was in the ER 4 times and had to stay two times..This is had been a very bad year for me...They have me on 40mg of Predisone, Humria, Methotrexate. It is not working...See with my Crohns its more in my stomach and up and not in my colon...I started have a lot of issues with going to the bathroom A LOT and i am bleeding down there.. So my doctor did a colon test on me and now i have it down there...So I am going to the bathroom like 15 times or MORE to the bathroom plus I am bleeding..so it was Sat and I was at work and my joints started hurting me and I was like i had this before it will go away..it got worst sat night it was hard for me to go up and down the steps because my wrist hurt, fingers, edbows, knees, feet and ankles..I went over to my parents house and my mom notice that my feet were REALLY swollen so I went into their hot tub....So the next I was suppose to go to the Crohns walk at first I planned to walk but at this point at least show up and talk to people cause I knew if I did th walk I prob. would walk two steps and be done...I didnt go because at this point I couldnt even get dress...The night goes on and it was 1:00am. My boyfriend and I were watching a movie togethr and I had to go to the bathroom and I couldnt even put ANY pressure on my feet...I started crying so hard cause my left hand was FROZEN I couldnt move it all all...my bf went to sleep. I couldnt sleep because I was sleeping all day because I didnt want to move and I had predisone in me to...I called my mom I told her I NEED TO GO TO THE ER RIGHT NOW. My mom came over and my bf put me over his shoulders (thank God I have him and that he is tall!) and puts me into the car...MY mom took me to the ER and thats when I found out I was having a Crohns issues (I KNEW THAT ALREADY) plus the Arthritis... This was all in June! Im still going to the bathroom a lot and I feel like I can not eat anything...I feel like everything that I eat just comes right now out of me...I can not keep this weight on me at all.. Being sick since Jan with Crohns ya I am so frustrated way past it!
