ABX are a double edge sword.
they help DS have "normal" BM's without miralax BUT... they cause cramping since they speed up the system
which is why normal crohn's kids get runny D with abx but constipated crohn's kids "GO normal"

No words of wisdom from me (you are all light years ahead in that department) but hope she feels better soon!

Antibiotics did that to my daughter - she went from being constipated to having watery diarrhea and crampy pain. And then she got CDiff from the antibiotics, just to make things even more interesting than usual

She's already had that. She's not aloud to get it AGAIN.

This was just that one time in the winter - she's not such an overachiever (…yet!).
Hope Grace starts feeling better soon! Would a heating pad help her belly pain?

Yay for normal poo!! Maybe her body is just not used to the feeling of solids passing through? Is there any mucus or blood?

Well no antibiotic today and it was the best day she's had in awhile.

I know they were causing her tummy problems.


Can antibiotics cause joint pains?

Glad she is feeling better off the antibiotics. Not sure about joint pains, I suppose it is possible since it will affect the whole body.

Just an update.

Grace received her third Humira shot and I'm hoping that she's heading in the right direction.
It seems her joint pain is easing a bit and she just looks healthier.
We also were given the ok to start the wean her off of pred.

I guess the thing she's dealing with (again) is constipation and nausea.
Hopefully that will be fixed when the drugs kick in more.

I hope y'all have a good week-end.
