I have rectal pain and blood- when I have a bowel it seems to improve my wheezing near my stomach and GERD and I feel better. Prednisone also helps and when I take it I often have a bowel movement. my colonoscopy was negative for UC/Crohn's
I had charcot-leyden crystals on a stool sample which could be ascaris worms, amoeba
no why do you ask?
what could be the source of the GI/lung symptoms? why does prednisone help my GI symptoms? do I have a food allergy?
but on blood test I had nothing above level 1 only level 4 dust mites
Sorry about that, becuase asthma13 said "yes the wheezing is constant", it seemed like they were answering my question, which I had asked to you.
I was wondering if you had another medical condition that caused your doctor to put you on prednisone. It has a lot of potential serious side effects which is why I ask. However, for many conditions, steroids help the symptoms are first and the reason is not always known. You could have a food allergy but it doesn't really seem to match your symptoms.
