I am a diabetetic 66 y old, suffering from Crohn since 1973, was treated with asulfidine, cortisone and in 1975 had part of my illeon taken.
Since then went ok only with diet. In 2001 it came back and treated it with Pentasa, at the begining only when the disease came active, later continuous up to Oct 2018. At this moment had to change to azatioprine. After a year developed pain in my right feet and bursitis trocaterics, both sides. Pain was terrible. The feet pain was diagnosed as neuropatia, treatment is 150mg pregabaline/day, no results.
I am diabetic since 2001 and take 2x sitaglismet 50/500 and 2x metformin 500mg daily.
For the pain in the hips, when to a rheumatologist and he stated the pain was not rheuma or Crohn associated and it was bursitis trocanteric.( he indicated injections, which I did not take, because I think we were not going to the root of the problem)
I started paing attention to my diet ( improved it ) and pains have diminished 75%?
Has any one been in a similar situation?

Hi Nestorlao, bursitis is inflammation of the bursae & typically is found in shoulders, arms & hips from repetitive use. It is a very common condition that afflicts millions of people that do not have crohns disease.
The injection for the hips is a steroid used to lower the inflammation. These injections may or may not help a person, nothing is guaranteed 100%. I've had them before & they worked for me.
Your diagnosis of neuropatia is neuropathy consistent with diabetes. You are taking a generic form of Lyrica & you may want to consider discussing with your dr increasing your dosage. The maximum dosage is 600mg per day & you are on a low dose. My husband is diabetic & he takes Gabapentin 3600mg per day for neuropathy, this is the max dosage.
Some people say an anti-inflammatory diet helps, if you feel it's helping stick with it. Take care.
