My boyfriend was dianosed with chrons June 2014 after 2 years of tests. SInce then he has been on steroids, coming off them a couple of times during which he was trying some medications which both made him have severe body aches, the last tablets resulted in going to A&E with a suspected heart attack.
Since then he has just been on steroids, with an appointment for a camera just before going on to the injections. The camera was in October, the results showed good remission / no chrons so he was taken off the steroids. These ended just before Christmas and for a few weeks he was fine, now the familliar pains are coming back like before, he had a consultant appointment this week about it but has been told that they cant do anything other than start at the beginning again .. which mean having pain killers with a side effect of being a anti deperessant, these did nothing the last time and he's just been told that the next appointment will be in 4 months. he is very worried about going back to how he was before, is there nothing more we can do?
He doesnt have any specific things that upset his chrons apart from veg and he already avoids that, it just seems silly for him to have be ill again before they can do anything to help him.
He is already feeling down as this illness has affected him in so many ways, which i am sure is the same for all sufferers but he is a stubborn one too so i can only help so much and i hate seeing him like this.
Thanks for listening.
