I am not on any pharma medication at present but I have had several DMD’s over the last few years so my immune system is constantly suppressed. I guess y’all know the score. My Lymphocyte count is always below 1. Sometimes 0.2. Sometimes 0.8! So when i had a really nasty bout of Diarrhoea and Nausea i presumed my crappy immune system was probably to blame for just how violent and disabling it was. I presumed it was just a stomach bug. That was 6 months ago. The violent nature of the stomach problem has subsided but never really fully gone away. Now my MS nurse is saying that’s it’s probably Crohn’s because Crohn’s and MS quite often go hand in hand. Whatever it is it is making my MS really active! But it’s not a relapse because none of the symptoms are present constantly. But i feel like i’m in stormy water when it comes to my whole repertoire of symptoms. It’s impacting my life like a full blown relapse. Has anyone else had this type of stomach complaint? A diagnosis of Crohn’s? Will i be right in thinking the “Crohn’s” is making my MS active?
Any thoughts welcomed because i know nothing about how Crohn’s and MS work together! Well i guess i’m learning. And it’s horrible! Stuck in my flat doing nothing much at all. It’s depressing. My MS nurse said they treat Crohn’s with steroids but i will never take steroids again. My body doesn’t tolerate them well.
