Hey there everyone. It's been a while since I've written to you guys. With some of you I had contact earlier on. My story is that I have inflammation in my intestine without a diagnosis. A few weeks ago I got really ill and the stomich ache was just terrible. My doctor immediately send me to the hospital with an ambulance, and the inflammation marks were really high again. They did an emergency colonoscopy (my 8th one!!!) and I just got the results back last week. They saw inflammation (surprise, surprise) but still not sure what is causing it. Crohn's disease has been on and off for more than four years now. But as some of you told me earlier, the treatment is more important than the name of the disease. Thank god my doctor and I finally got ont he same page and she said immediately we need to strart trying other treatment (I was taking budenofalk, corticosteroïds but milder than prednisone) and that there is definately something wrong with me. So I started prednisone more than a week ago now, but I get these really weird side-effects. My heart races, I get extremely hot and sweaty, dizzy, really sharp headaches, insomnia (I just spend the night sitting straight up in bed staring at the window), shaking hands, anxiety attacks and paranoya... I feel like I'm going a little crazy here, so any of you have had similar side-effects?
