    Is your Crohn's usually worse in the morning?

    Since being diagnosed 3 years ago, I have noticed a pattern in which sometimes I will be woken by mild-medium Crohn's stomach cramps in the morning, for a few days or a week, usually when I am not managing my stress correctly. Thought I would ask other Crohnies and UCers, are your symptoms...

    Journeys in Prednizone - SIDE EFFECTS

    So, after being diagnosed with Crohn's and discharged from the hospital, I am now on my third day of prednizone medication. They are planning to have me on it for about a month, and slowly taper off. The meds seem to be taking effect, hurrah! :) as my stomach cramps have greatly receded, and my...
