Rosie has some good advice on pain management. Here is a good way to know if this is your Chrons or Fibro. ONce you start taking the prednisone, if your joint pain gets worse, then it's your fibromyalgia that is flaring up. If your pain gets better, then you're doing the right thing by taking the prednisone, and the pain is from your Chrons.
I always do that test to figure out what is flaring. My lupus or my Fibro? Fibromyalgia will not get better if you're on prednisone. Pred will only make fibro worse. It's a balancing act that isn't always easy to maintain.
I tried Tramadol too and it made me very nauseated. So I went to its less potent sister, Tramacet, and it was nasty too. Pretty much every single pain medication I've tried has made me nauseated or extremely drowsy. Can't win for losing!!
Deep breathing exercises helps me with the pain also. I know this is hard. Fibro is a beast and I wish we had more resources and action plans to battle it. Keep in touch okay,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
