As everyone is probbly aware of by now, I have been having stomach/abdomnial pain, with no D or C, and the docs think i might have IBS instead of Crohns, since Pentasa and Entocort didn't do anything to help with the pain. Has anyone ever tried any of these? Do they work for the pain?
Also, I'm wondering why neither of them have prescribed Predisone for me (I asked, but they both wanted to try different things first), if it seemed to work for so many other people out there.
Have had Mild/Severe Stomach/Abdominal pain for the last 12 months. Made a few trips to the ER for the pain. Have had no other syptoms of Crohn's or IBS that are typical. All tests showed nothing. Hernia surgeon thought it was a hernia. Went for Hernia Surgery (for nothing). After recent Colonoscopy, GI thinks its most likely Crohns, becuase of inflamation he saw in small Intenstine (but not 100% convinced yet). Going for the Camera Pill test next month. Tried Pentasa and Entocort for 6 weeks; both of which havene't done much to reduce this chronic-never-ending pain. Saw a different GI last week for a second opinion and he thinks I might have IBS, so for the past week I've been taking Hyoscyamine, Nortriptylin and Citrucel (of which aren't helping as of yet)
