I have Crohn's Disease; diagnosed 2 years ago at age 28. I have not been in remission yet. I was prescribed prednisone, pentasa, and Imuran. I have weened off the prednisone again, but just as soon as I do it flares up again. Now I'm only taking pentasa and imuran. I feel really sore in the upper middle portion and extremely tender in my entire lower portion of my gut. It hurts to stand straight, it hurts to walk, or move in any way. It hurts to press on the area. I have waves of pain that keep me awake at night. I feel like I really need to pass gas but when I do its only a little. When I have a bowel movement, its hurts slightly in my lower gut, and its like I can feel it moving out of my intestines. All my Doctor tells me is that if the imuran doesn't work my only two options left is humira or some other really expensive medication that I know I won't be able to take because I can't afford it. Anyways, this feeling I am now having is different than my normal crohn's pains. Sometimes it is tolerable so long as I lay or sit absolutely still but I still have random spasms. I am wondering if something else is going on besides inflammation. I'm hoping someone here may have an idea.
