    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi,
    Over teh last 5 years of my life I have been diagnosed with ibs, ibd a md has been treating me for chrons. I lost 27 pounds with my last flare up and was unable to eat solid food and keep it in my body for 7 weeks and with the help of prednizone. It has now ben 2 years that i have had no break and diarrhea almost every single day of those 2 years.

    The doctors keep giving me run around and I am left with little hope as to how to deal with the pain i suffer from. I have been on numerou sprescribed drugs and have found no relief. Please if someone can talk to me or help me with what is happening or any advice I would be thankful
