Hi. I am sick and in pain, and new to the disease and to the community discussions. I was diagnosed in April after a little pain that I considered minmal, but had lots a blood in stool and diarreah. Stayed in hospital for six days. Sent home with tramadol, Lialda, and prednisone. I improved quicklym with just a little pain sometimes.

I started feeling bad again, so stopped taking meds. I began taking slippery elm and tumeric. Stopped bleeding completely for a week. However, now all of the pain is back, but this time I am constipated and have severe stomach cramps that sent me to the ER.

CAT scan showed nothing new or improved. I hate feeling so bad! It Lately I've been skipping a lot of meals simply to avoid abdominal pain. Any suggestions?
