I was diagnosed about 2 months ago and have spent the last 6 months with some burning, slight bloating and small discomforts while exploring everything from GERD to depression as the cause of my symptoms. Almost immediately after my colonoscopy/endoscopy, my symptoms have gotten much worse. Can this be because they were in there with the scope? I mean, if my guts are sensitive could this possibly have made this worse? They took several biopsies as well.
Also, I took Prednisone for 6 days (I ended up having reaction to it - couldn't breathe) and got off it. The symptoms took an upward turn after that as well.
I know it could just be the disease progressing but really, after so many months with really mild symptoms, it seems so suspicious that my pains and spasms are so much worse now within about 6 weeks.
