    Well I had my first GI appointment in nearly a year thanks to the fact haven't had a need really. As my signature says I'm on Remicade and have been for a little more than a year now and she seems to be happy with that. I'm stopping Imuran now however as she didn't see the need. I've gained...

    What's the Weirdest Place You've "Gone"

    So I was discussing this new planking thing with my girlfriend the other day and we were laughing at all the weird places some of our friends had planked and posted on Facebook. This then led into a discussion about all the weird places I'd gone to the bathroom. To start things off I've had the...

    Question: Arthritis

    Just a quick question, is it possible for a 19 year old to actually have arthritis. Seems like the last few weeks Ive had some pain in my feet and also some back pain. I did start remicade 8 or 9 weeks ago now too but no problems the first few weeks at all. So what Im asking i guess is could it...

    Remicade Review

    I just found a study reviewing near all medical treatments of Crohns disease and it was interesting to find this: "treatment with infliximab and AZA compared with steroids and later addition of AZA leads to significantly more patients in remission and off steroids at 26 wk (60% vs 41%)" 60% of...

    Saw My Doc Yesterday

    Saw my doctor for the first time after my dilation/colonoscopy the other day. She said all is going very well and seeing how I'm feeling well Imuran looks like the right drug for me right now because all my blood cell counts are perfect at the moment. And for the first time in 2 years I found...

    What does a blockage feel like?

    Today I experienced the worst pain I have probably ever had while not going to the bathroom. I didn't have to go immediatley after the pain was gone either. I was walking towards the couch when all of a sudden I had to almost double over in pain. Nothing helped and it almost felt like somebody...

    3 days before Christmas on my Dad's birthday he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He's doing very well controlling it but coming up with foods for the whole family to eat has been a bit of a challenge. I know Mike you have both so I guess this is more or less directed to you but anybody with...

    My Update...

    About 6 weeks ago now I switched doctors and then medication. I went from asacol which was doing nothing for me to Imuran. It is already starting to change my life. This is the best I've felt since diagnoses 2 years ago and almost all my bm's are formed! It still shocks me everytime I look...
