Gerd and Chrohn's Disease
Is there a link? I have been in agony for a month now. It started with this dull pain on my right side just at the bottom of my rib cage. I waited two weeks and went to the doctor. By this time, I was having pain in my whole rib cage. The dr. said my rib cage was inflammed and gave me Vioxx. That started all kinds of trouble, painful cramping, bleeding, etc. Went back, he said that it was my reflux, put me on aciphex and zantac. Went back for my follow up on Fri. and he told that I have to get this under control or I'm looking at Colitis.
I need someone to help me because I'm scared to death.
