Hi to all, I have stumbled across this website thank goodness!
A bit about me, I started getting bad tummy trouble May 2006 and lost a stone in weight, I thought it was due to a sickness bug, howerver the pain got worse, I to embarrased at the time to got to the Doctors, I eventuly went adn the Doctors told me I had PILES, ok i thought at leat I know what it is...but no the pain got even worseI went back to the Doctors at least 3 times, every time he said it was Piles.
By this time I was spending more time on loo, I couldnt help out at my son school a I was rushing to loo all the time, I went to the Doctors AGAIN and this tie he sent me for tests Huray Bloods X-Ray Etc, at the Hospital he told me there nd then I had Colitis and it looked bad, he then put me on the list to have a colopsy, which I had adn biopsy taken to confirm I had Colitis.
At this point he gave a prescription for ASACOL 6 a day, adn PREDNISOLONE 6 a day when i have a flare up.
I really didnt want to taken any tablets so i went to the health food shop shop and started taking vegan omega 3,6,9 vitinmin B complex, Aloe Vera tablets, and MSM methysulphoylmethane and thing calmed down with out the help from the Doctors perscrition.....I then started getting extreamly bad headaches but as soon as I stopped taking MSM methysulphoylmethane my headaches stopped!
My condition was slowly getting worse, I still had not had any results back from the Hospital about bloods etc, as i was feeling poorly i stared the ASACOL, I had only taken a few of them, I was vionlty sick had no balance adn very unwell, i stopped takin these stright away, rung the Hospital(as my GP is USELESS)!!
So I went to the Hospital and now had COLAZIDE percribed for myself I had the same reactions to this as the ASACOL, I now had the results of bloods, appartly the lowest B12 he had even seen......which is a sign of Crohns.......I need a CT scan next week another colopoy down the throat
I am now on AZATHIOPRINE have been taking 50mg a day first week was ok but now im starting to feel very spaced out, very relxed when i have taken them,but not good when you have a child to look after, over this last 48hr it has got worse I took PREDNISOLONE for the first time only 2 of these and my head has been bad all night.
I stoped work last friday as it got to much, at thgis moment im having to go to the doctors 3 times a week for B12 injections adn once a week for bloods like i said my doctor are useless and dont take bloods at the surgey, so im tooing and frowing all the time.
Has any one else experinced the same with the medacation? I woild love to here from you all. Im getting married very soon and wanted this calm before my big day!!!!!
Thanks for listening to me i know it long....lol
