Crohn's and Pain relief-with other conditions....
Hello, I was officially diagnosed with Crohn's almost 2 years ago but lived with the symptoms for many years. I have several other conditions that complicate matters. I have daily diarrhea (IBS), GERD, arthritis in lower back along with fibromyalgia (which only developed after chemo treatments for breast cancer 9 years ago). Needless to say at the age of 45 I feel more like I am 90 most days... I currently take asacol (sp?) for the crohns but I am also prescribed Ultram and percoset for the fibro., my question is my GP prefers me to take the ultram for pain however being aspirin based it often causes my stomach to be upset and I have noted lately more abdominal pain and I am wondering if the aspirin could be causing problems with the crohns disease. I understand the concern taking percoset however I don't want to be taking something that will worsen my condition and to be able to function daily I need something to control the pain. Thank you in advance for any info and advise-
