I had a case of shingles back in March.Two friends have gotten shingles -- one in her 30s and the other in her 40s. Did they make another appointment for you?
I didn't know that shingles could be contagious.
Thank you for this message! I've also been using the greek yogurt and honey. Do you have any other diet suggestions for controlling Crohn's?Male here with no experience in labor pains but plenty with abdominal cramps from CD. When I get "the cramps" I mix 8oz of greek yogurt with a heaping spoon of honey and eat it. The yogurt has probiotics that is friendly to the piping, and the honey is a natural anti-inflammatory. This helps to shorten the duration of the cramps.
I eventually noticed a pattern between cramps and certain foods. I have now identified the trigger foods through (painful) isolation process, and since they have been eliminated from my diet the cramps are far less frequent. But I could develop new reactions at any time. The perplexing thing about CD is that no two patients have the same trigger foods; most cannot tolerate dairy products but they do not bother me.
My GI was impressed at this yogurt/honey home remedy and how I controlled CD through diet. He was even more impressed that my last colonoscopy was so clear that he scheduled my next one out to 10 years not the usual 5.
It won't help a blockage though - that requires a visit to ER.
oh my goodness, I am so sorry for this. Prep is such a pain to do. I hope it all goes smoothly for the next appointment in August.Hi MissChrons
I have just read your post spooky isn't it I went for my capsule Endoscopy on the 25th July took the bowel prep and fasted for the next eighteen hours
got to the hospital and was told that there had been a mix up and they had booked someone else in there is only one machine so I have to go through it all again at the end of August hope it is third time lucky.
have you tried CBD OIL as an alternative? CBD Oil is from the flower of Cannabis and now can Relief Pains but soon it will be a cure in people especially in curing Cancerous people. I may be looking forward to this and I am always! but for now, I guess we could start planting cannabis for the future and start searching seeds to plant. In researching I across this page blimburnseeds.com/news/marijuana/medical/is-it-safe-to-use-cbd-during-pregnancy/Hi Kate
Yes I have to go back on the 25th July at the same time 10am it does not effect my holiday thank goodness.
I was told by the IBD nurse that while I have the spots I can give someone chickenpox as it is the same virus.
Wild horses would not stop me from this holiday as both my husband and I are so looking forward to it.
I hope you are well.
Anything that is a natural anti-inflammatory seems to control it. Dark chocolate is one (YAY!)Thank you for this message! I've also been using the greek yogurt and honey. Do you have any other diet suggestions for controlling Crohn's?
