Newly diagnosed


Tue, August 02, 2022 12:36 AM

Hi, I am a 43 year old woman. I was diagnosed with severe crohn's of the small intestine 2 weeks ago. We have known I have this for 14 years, the doctors in syracuse took that long to figure it out..I'm on methotrexate, 8 also have chronic gastritis, and what they call proctitis caused by ulcerative colitis. This is a lot to wrap my head around right now...I'm in a flare that won't stop....so they keep throwing more meds at me. Humera is an amazing med. However I am on my 9th biologic in 10 years for psoriatic arthritis. I j7st really could use some words of wisdom.
