Hi, this is all new to me. Diagnosed 1/09, felt like I was giving birth thru the wrong opening, pain. Scope, tests, bills later, ta-da Crohn's. Doctor put me on Pentasa and sent me out the door. Went to my doctor for panic attacks (23years)as my usage for Zanax was up and he wanted me in. After I told him I had C, he got this look of poor you on his face and I'm thinking what's the big deal!If it wasn't for reading what people had to say in this site think I still wouldn't know. (If I use wrong words correct me). Had my second attack 3 weeks ago, pain level 10, hadn't a stool in 4 days, started throwing up. I was so desperate started throwing pain pills down, only to throw them up. Funny, one bounced off my front tooth and I thought I'd pick it up in the morning. I THINK the toxins build up and make me spacey too. Also in the 2 years I learned all the no no foods, that would be about everything. Safe foods, anything that grows in the ground or is born of water. Little meals, bite size all day long. Except for chili, I can eat chili, go figure. Remission for me is 4 months which is a long one, usually 2 weeks, than it's "what did you eat wrong this time". Breakfast 1/2 rice cake and peper jelly, broken into 6 pieces, when thats gone, gerber step 2 baby food for fruit, only way I can eat most of it, mid afternoon, broth, vegetables; stringbeans and carrots only, dinner other half of rice cake and fish on top. That was today.This is a step up from chicken broth only. I was starving. Tonight for the first time in months I bloated up to 6 months along, better than the nine months that never went away for days. Figured out sitting up for long period or tight waisted pants all had to go. I've quite the dress collection now. During this writting I passed gas and the baby is leaving. So somethings stuck or swollen. When I don't go and the stool is building up it pushes on my blatter and I have no control. Now it's pushing on my spine, if it's low back pain I know it's stuck put coming, if it's high backaches it's just moving along. I've gone to the chiro several times but by the time I get home it just pops out of place again. My sister was tested for (and I'm going to spell this wrong) Silliacte and was positive, Her doctor told her no grains as it could lead to "Crohns". I take B's,have to take time release iron, I cut it back to once a week as it binds me, Cod Oil, Veggie pill all recomended by the Chiro. I can't find a balance, am I trying to achieve the un-achievable? Balance.
