I have already worked through a bad flare, weight loss, hair falling out, gas, nausea, vomiting, fatigue. My diagnosis came after I developed fistulas. I thought that with the prednisone, metronidazole and pentasa I was out of the woods. Felt good for a couple of months. Odd things have started showing up like pain in the knuckles of hands and feet, I have no concentration for reading or xwords (its taken 3 attempts to get this far in this little story) I feel like I have a fever all the time, Tired, nausea, cramps etc. I did go to the Dr and hes put me on azathioprine 50mg, metronidazole 500mg,as well as the pentasa 500mg. I am not feeling any better, if anything, worse. I can now add sun sensitivity to the list of symptoms. I am so scared of the pain, the not knowing if this will ever end, will it get better? Add to all this the fear of unstable finances and living arrangements. Please tell me all will be well. I keep telling myself that this too shall pass...but its getting hard to see the silver lining.
