    Should I get a refferal to a Rheumy?

    So...I've been fighting for diagnosis for a while now...I always thought Rheumy's were specifically for RA...Looked it up, and now know better. :P Should I try to get a referral for one? Maybe they'll have some other thoughts the GI may not have had? I don't know....I just want help> :( Having a...

    Incredibly discouraged

    Hey....I know I haven't really been around offering support, so part of me feels I shouldn't be requesting it, however I just need somewhere to turn right now. The past few weeks i've been getting up off my butt doing things, spending some time away from the computer. I have, however, been...

    Symptoms Diary

    Do you keep one? how do you lay it out? I want to keep track of my food, pain, fatigue, and bowel movements, but i can't seem to figure out a good way to lay it out so there's not a lot of empty space, but it's still easy to read.....do you do it hourly, every few hours, just before and after...

    Feeling slightly gratified

    So, my sister in law has been pretty sick the past couple days, diarrhea, nausea, some vomitting, stomach pain, pretty much what i've had, some off and on, for the past 5 months, and just said to me "i was thinking about you today, wondering if this is how you feel every day and how much it must...

    Hugs

    Four hugs a day....that's the minimum....four hugs a day, not the maximum.... Well, i'm a little short today. I don't know what's up, but i'm feeling like a big sappy soggy manic mess today. One minute happy, one minute next to tears. I'm frustrated, i was just starting to get my dang emotions...

    What does Pred do for you?

    I don't really know what i'm looking for here, but i think i just want to get some clarity on what i should be looking for? I guess i had some high expectations for it, that i was going to feel 100% better, back to my old self again (whatever that may be). I have been feeling some improvement...

    What was your poop like today?

    Today, i had the perfect poop. Let me explain. It was approximately 3-4 inches long, probably about 1 inch in diameter (Guessing here people.....i didn't measure! :P). it was a perfect golden brown color, and appeared soft, all in one piece, not these rabbit turds stuck together i seem to get...

    So, um, how early does the pred energy start?!

    wowsers, i have done more in a couple hours than in the whole stinking week. LOL. I've taken two doses of 40mg pred, and am just gearing to go! LOL> I don't know if it's all in my head, it does seem a little early for that, and i'm still not feeling physically well, but wow!

    Going to tha doc....

    Well, i've been trying to avoid it because i'm seeing the GI next week, but i'm headed to the doc today. My stomach is still very sore, probably a 7/10 on the pain scale, and my back/butt pain are nearly debilitating....i doubt he'll do anything, but i guess we'll see! My worry at this point is...

    Having a down day

    I feel like there's no light at the end of the tunnel, hopeless, frustrated, scared, angry, depressed. there's not enough words to explain how i feel right now. I tried to get my GI appt. bumped up, but they said the standard wait time is 6 weeks....Don't really know, why, but that's what they...

    More confused than ever.....

    So i just went to my GP for the first time since my colonoscopy. Apparantly i have ulcers in my rectum, they're calling proctitis, which may or may not be due to an underlying IBD. While the rest of the colonoscopy was rather normal, the pathologist's findings were inconclusive, and they are...

    How often do you cry?

    Lately, it seems like 2-3 times a day for me. Every time my hubby says "i feel bad for you, i wish i could do something" i break down, every time he does any housework i cry and say i should be helping (not that he shouldn't pitch in, but he's working full time and doing 90% of the housework...
