I'm not sure if anyone may be able to help me. I was diagnosed with Crohn's 7 weeks ago and have been on Prednisolone ever since and I've recently started Azathioprine.
I was in horrific pain for weeks before my diagnosis but the steroids have really helped to reduce this. My crp was over 130 in September when I was at my worst but now it's come right down to 4, I have reduced my steroids to 15mg from 30mg - so the inflammation has really gone down but I still have pains every day. Any idea why this is? I'm worried I may have a structure as I often get pain after eating and suffer quite badly with constipation which is the opposite to most people. I'm waiting for MRI results to come back, but wandered if anyone else had had a similar experience and if anyone else had pains everyday? I don't know if these will ever go? I feel like I am still having a flare up - but not sure at what point you become 'in remission'.
Any advise at all would be greatly appreciated.
