This is a new one for me. What is going on?
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler.
Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.

On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning, gastritis symptoms, horrible right hip and low back pain.

Is your problem with both eyes? I've started having a blurry cloudiness in just my right eye. I am also getting a lot of floaters in my right eye. I had an eye exam about a month and a half ago when I got new glasses and everything was fine. If it keeps up I'll go to the opthamologist.

Remicade and 6MP

Killerzoey, Isn't Entocort a steroid? Have you had your blood sugar checked? I started getting blurry vision and I found out I have steriod-induced diabetes. My PCP and I are both hoping that it is situational instead of permanent because my blood glucose levels are so good for the last 6-8 months with minimum meds. We hope I'll be able to get off everything in another month or two. I would just have your sugar tested just to be on the safe side and I also would recommend everybody who is on a steriod to have it checked. I was only on it for 6 weeks. I'm just suseptible to it I guess.
