    Has Humira Run Its Course?

    Hey Everyone, I know its been a while since I posted last, but up until recently, I have been doing well (Crohn's wise). Since last week, I have been having some pretty bad symptoms. For example, I have been having at least two bowel movements in one day, but with the trip to the bathroom, I...

    Little to no appetite

    Good evening all, So it seems that lately I have not had much of an appetite. It does not hurt to eat or anything like that, it seems to be more that I don't feel hungry. For example, this morning I got up and had a granola bar and that was it. By the time church was over, I was not hungry at...

    New Symptoms??

    Hello Everyone! TMI alert! So it seems that I may have some new symptoms and I was wondering if anyone else has something like this. For me "normal" is usually one solid poo a day, but recently I will have a day where I am in the bathroom 2-3 times in one day. Then, I will have nothing for...

    New Cramps

    So I am starting to have cramps right after eating. It seems that it does not matter what I eat either. Usually a few minutes after I eat, I will get a really sharp cramps, then as quickly as they came, they go away. Then, a few hours later I have D. I am not sure if I am eating too much, or...

    B12 pill vs injections

    For the past few months it seems like my energy levels have been down. I take b 12 pills everyday and I have been tested for anemia (which I have). I have been taking the pills for about a year and a half (when I was diagnosed with CD). I also had surgery in 2013 to remove a section of my colon...

    Lack of Hunger

    Alright fellow Crohnies.. I've got a question for you. It seems like I am never hungry anymore nor do I really have much of an appetite. I don't experience pain when I eat, it is just that I don't ever feel hungry, even when I have hardly had anything to eat all day. The only time I ever feel...

    Humira Bumps?

    I have noticed recently that I have all of these little bumps all over my chest and back. (it is worse on my back). They don't hurt, nor do they bother me, but they are pretty gross and they seem to multiply after I inject. I am wondering if there is a way to get rid of them, or if anyone...

    Constapation

    I had a colon resection surgery back in February, and I am still having problems with constipation and it is getting really annoying. I talked to my GI about it, and he wanted me to take Muralax for 14 days. That worked, but it seems like I will be fine for a few days, but then all of a sudden I...

    Constipation! Can't take much more of this!

    For most of this past week, I have been feeling pretty constipated. I am able to go, but not all that the same time. A little will come out, then I will go later and more will come out, then by the end of the day, it will all come out, but each time I have to push and strain. I have been taking...

    Lack of Suppot From Friends

    So I usually don't vent like this, but I just have to get it out in the open and stop thinking about it. When I was in the hospital last month having my colon resectioned and having two fistulas removed, no one (other then my pastor, my parents, and two friends I have not seen in ages) came to...

    Surgery and throwing up

    Ok so I had surgery about three weeks ago to remove a section of my colon and two fistulas. I have been on solid foods since I have been home without many problems. However it seems that at least once a week I start to throw up (usually at night or early in the morning). Is my body still...

    Surgery and Humira

    I have been on Humira for about six months now and I know that it is really helped me so far. However, I am having surgery in about two weeks and I was told not to take my next injection on Feb 4th. I am just wondering if anyone has stoped using Humira for a short time and got sick or had a...

    Throwing up?

    Ok so this is the second time this has happened. I threw up a few weeks ago because I thought that I had just eaten something bad. Then today I felt a little sick most of the day. I mostly had a sore throat and was tired. Then yesterday evening I went to church and was feeling fine, but as soon...

    Getting Frustrated

    So I went earlier this week to have some blood work done. I thought that I was starting to feel better after strating the Humira, but it seems that, according to my blood work, I still have another infection somewhere. So my doc is putting on more antibotics, this time it is cipro. I am...

    Fistula? Or no Fistula? That is the question..

    Ok.. so I am not sure if I have a fistula going from my colon to my bladder. My Crohn’s doc says I do, my surgeon says I don’t. I have had a colonoscopy, and a CT scan and either can confirm or deny the presence of a fistula going to my bladder. Now, let me throw something more into the mix...

    My journey with Crohn's

    My journey begins in January of this year. I had just started my final semester of Seminary in Chicago (I am from Texas) and we had barely stared into the new semester, and I started feeling sick. I first thought it was just bad stomach flu, but I never really lost my appetite, nor was I...
