hi.it is good to have found this sight. ive never spoke to anyone else who has crohns so this is a joy. ive had crohns since preteens but wasnt diagnosed until age 20. im now 36. its been a very hard road. im at my wits end and feeling very alone. im having a flare which is terrifying for me as i have tried cimzia as my last resort which i quit in 2011 due to it not working. im allergic to everything else. remicade gave me serum sickness,pentasa asacol gives me pancreatitis ,antibiotics gives me hives,prednisone makes me crazy and makes me gain 50 lbs in a month.ive got osteoperosis from it. ive tried herbal vegetarian diet. i thaught i was better from that diet. im having high stress which im sure its some of the cause of th flare. im on disability which i got on my first try. iquit going to drs ive had opiod dependance in the past due to long hospital stays.i hate pain meds. i also have 1 kidney which gets infected when my crohns flares.i also have an other medical issues. no surgeries the drs say only 30 percent chance it woul help. i am looking for answers. i try other herbal remedy but im not allowed to have it in my state. im thankful for sight and i hope i can find some who can identify. i dont have anyone who understands.
