He only put me on Pantoprazole daily one tab before breakfast. I think it has helped a bit in reducing the acidity feeling. I also take Vitamin D tab once a week (I had severe Vit D deficiency till 2 years back). I also discovered fresh carrot juice works wonders for me :)
I was also wondering of getting capsule endoscopy this time rather than traditional endo/colonoscopy since small intestine is missed out.
IBDs can result in a variety of symptoms including joint pain and discomfort. The antibodies that may be running 'wild' in your system can attack tissues other than those of the digestive tract. They may be what is causing your joint issues.
The doc may be waiting to get all of your test results together and look at them as a whole, which will certainly help.
What meds did he put you on in the meantime?
Oh..Sorry about that. I just cannot get these two terms correct. I spelled it wrong. I meant Inflammatory bowel disease. He seemed a bit confused and just said to come back for the procedure after two months. And said I would have to stay on certain medications if results are more or less same.
Also is it possible IBD causes inflammation in other parts of body?? like neck and joint problems?
Thanks a lot.
I do have constipation since years. But it isnt exactly extreme. I would say on a scale of 1-10(10 being worst); I have 6 for constipation.
No problem with gas. But I NEVER had diarhhea which doctors keep on asking.
do you have gas and constipation problems also like me?
