I'm having a lot of the same problems Mindy. I am in almost constant pain or discomfort. I can't eat a lot and it just doesn't feel like my stomach is digesting much. I get really hot sometimes. I'll eat dairy, but only with lactase pills and i don't do a lot. I don't feel like i need to go much. It's either like i'm backed up or it's because i'm so inflamed, not sure. I've also had really rough time with prednisone, eventhough i was on it for years. It's like if i take it now it makes me really hyper, i can't eat at all. I had an endoscopy-normal and a colonoscopy- some ulcers and active crohns, that was about it. All bloodwork was normal. I lost 55 pounds since May. I'm curious how it worked out for you.View Thread
