At the moment:
Normal day is going to the toilet half a trillion times a day, getting up 3-4x a night, reduced urgency, mild cramping, etc.
Flare up is going to the toilet a trillion times a day, ZOMG! urgency, getting up a few more times in the night, more serious cramping, rectal soreness, stomach gurgles, etc.
I'm always anxious, but I didn't include it as I don't think it worsens my Crohn's per se. If I'm not anxious, then I'm depressed; if I'm not depressed, then I'm anxious.
Dx Crohn's in summer of 2000. (Yay )
Tried and failed: 5-ASAs, azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, methotrexate, Humira, various diets.
Had surgery Feb '13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy. First thing to put me into remission in 13 years.
Had second surgery 10th July '15 to reverse the stoma and connect the ileum to the rectum. Feeling rough.
