Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
I have to say it is not advisable for a Crohn's person to any form of.
(it is asprin based). I am not 100% on the base of.
...but it shouldn't be taken either. It can set a person into a flare up. There are many type of meds that over the counter. The best one to discuss this is a pharmacist..
I too have ankylosing spondylitis. I take.
When the pain is not to bad. You may be able to purchase.
I or II over the counter. I know we can Canada. Next to this if the pain is real bad then I have to take stronger meds for it..
I wish you the very best and do.
That you find some relief...
Sorry you have this pain and there are several things I have tried for AS related pain. I also have Crohn's and find, as has been suggested, that the anti-inflammatory NSAID drugs like.
Upset the Crohn's within a couple of days so only a very short term solution! Combinations of Paracetamol and.
Less aggressive though.
Can be constipating. Benzodiazapine and other similar sedative drugs have the potential for side effects but might help short term under medical supervision..
I have found that Medifast diet and avoidance of milk in particular helps and it might be worth cutting out all milk products for a couple of weeks if you have not already tried it to see if this helps. I am ok with most milk products but find uncooked milk itself produces severe joint pains within a few hours of drinking..
I would recommend.
, either by connective tissue.
, or by using a vibrating back massager of the pistol type which you may be able to do for yourself. Connective tissue.
Is a high friction.
Done with the thumbs which can stimulate the blood flow in the affected area. Like all the rest not a cure but it can help reduce pain for a time. Lots of luck to you and Bonne Anne.........JR..
Are both NSAID's (Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs).
Not sure about Crohn's patients but for Ulcerative Colitis sufferers, NSAID's are a huge no no. Extra strength rapid release.
Arthritis is the only thing that comes close to taking the edge off for me. Don't worry about them thinking you're seeking drugs. If they treat you that way, request another doctor immediately. Your pain is real and a good doctor knows that..
Maybe try applications of.
Or cold? Other than that I don't know what else could help, sadly. My pain is only curbed by large doses of pain meds that I get from the doctor. I.
You find some help and feel better soon!..
Forgot to mention a drug that has been around a long time and that is.
, one brand name Salazopyrin or.
In the US. Has anti-inflammatory properties and also a sort of primitive antibiotic. I have taken this daily for nigh on 20 years and it is supposed to keep both the Crohn's and AS under control. I have tried a more modern drug like.
But I find the Salazopyrin is better for the AS. Available on prescription only in the UK and here in France, don't know about the US. A much cheaper drug than.
There is always the possibility of side effects as with any drug but worth asking your doc about it if you are not taking anything on a regular basis though with Crohn's I would have thought that you would be on a maintainence dose of something. Bon courage......JR..
(800mg) for pain. My GI doesn't like it because it can aggrevate the stomach. I don't take Rx pain meds unless I'm going to bed. If you take.
, be sure to ake it with food. I.
That you are feeling better soon...
