Ive had BD on/off for about two years now and im under the Liverpool University Hospital for treatment with various symptoms ie... re -occuring mouth and genital ulcers and the aches / pains that come with it , including recently severe joint pain in fingers /knuckles /wrists and elbow joints. Im on various meds such as colchicine and various creams and sprays for mouth and genital ulcers also receive an injection of inter muscular depomedrone ( methylprednisalone ) every couple of months , also recently been put on Azathioprine - starting with one tablet a day building up to 4 tablets a day !
And thats were the problems started ... usual side effects of feeling sick ,sore tummy and the runs , told to bring quantity of tablets down to two a day but in the mean time my blood tests every two weeks have been coming back normal apart from my recent last two which show an increase in my liver funtion test _- not good !!!
So been told to stop taking Azathioprine immediatly and come in for a blood test on the 27th december ...worried to say the least !
