Well after 2 years of no meds and minimal symptoms, I was starting to have a flare again. Over the past 2-3 weeks I had dropped 10lbs and had bad cramping/bloating/pain. My energy level was about 50% of what it usually is. I hadn't been sleeping at night because I kept cramping in the middle of the night.

1st Night of LDN: Only side effect to report was a little trouble falling asleep, it usually takes me about 15 minutes to fall asleep and it took me a little over an hour. I had no cramping or pain overnight, and literally feel about 85% right now after one night! SO far so good, I look forward to reporting back to you guys in the coming weeks.

Yes, please keep us posted! I've been on LDN for a month now and can certainly say that it has helped my energy. Sleeping disturbances abated after a week or so for me, though I still have very vivid dreams.
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler. Major symptoms began after her birth, with widespread pain/stiffness and mucus in stool. Had seen blood in stool for years prior but believe (and still suspect) hemorrhoids and/or fissures for this particular manifestation.

Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. The only visible areas of inflammation via scope were my stomach, rectum, and somewhere in my colon. Pill Cam, SBFT, CT Scan all normal. I think I may mainly have colitis.


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.

Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and burning now gone. Gastritis symptoms are also quiet now. What was horrible right hip and low back pain has subsided about 60%. I'm pretty much feeling normal but in no way think I do not have more symptoms in my future.
