    Help getting medication

    Due to being sick all the time I had to go to part-time at my job recently. Because of this I've lost my health insurance through work. I'm trying to get on state Medicaid, but I've been denied once and I'm waiting to hear back from them again. My GI wants me on Humira. He's wanted me on it...

    I've been having troubles getting any medication for my Crohn's since getting diagnosed last December. I work and have insurance, but my prescription insurance only covers 50% of my medications. My GI wanted me on Cimzia but insurance denied coverage. So then he tried Humira and insurance...

    Should I go to ER??

    Okay I'm going to try to make this detailed enough but not too long. Last Saturday I started to get an URI. I went to a dr about it Monday and got put on antibiotics. I saw my GI on Tuesday, but I felt fairly fine so we didn't discuss much (still waiting on insurance answers for some meds)...

    So many problems I don't know what to do

    Ever since my diagnosis in December I have been sick pretty much every day! And I'm getting other problems and diagnosis. A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with diabetes, and for the past few weeks I've been having high blood pressure problems. I was in the hospital again yesterday...

    So glad to find others who "understand"

    I'm so glad that I found this site! I finally feel like I've found someone else out there who might understand what I'm going through. My story (so far...): In the beginning of December 2013 I started having some bad nausea, light-headedness and a little bit of vomitting. I am a nurse at a...
