We're trying to determine now if its worth it or not. Initially, my body was achy all over with a very, very stiff lower back & feet/hands. So, basically my lower back is much better, but these other symptoms are just as bad. I really don't know what to do. My head hurts all the time now & my throat feels very raw too. All the aches & pain is from my shoulder blades & up. And now the eyes, the eye doc said it might be my contacts, but, even when I wear my glasses, the eyes still hurt, water & itch. What do you guys think I should do? I've been taking so much Lortab & it only helps for an hour or so, but, I told the gi on Tuesday I didn't want to increase the dose, but, I have been doubling up on it, I hope I'm not taking too much. I have also been using a massager on the neck & back, but again only relieves it for a while. One night I did everything possible to get rid of the pain & I couldn't believe how much better I felt with no pain, but nothing seems to work now.
Dx with CD 1987, 3 resections, 3 abcess sx, OA back & hips, bulging disk, Major depression/anxiety, kidney stones & sx to remove, now 44 yrs old. Still trying to figure this disease out & of course all the little extra complications that come with this rollarcoaster of a life with CD.
