I Really Feel No Two Situations Are the Same
I have had ulcerative colitis for 11 years now ever since I was in the Navy. At the same time I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and so my 2 disease battle was underway….
I have been treated at the Vet Hosp, local GI docs, ND’s and yes, even Mayo, and after all those visits NOBODY knows more than each other. I have spent, I would say almost everyday finding the TRIGGER to this spontaneous dual auto immune reaction and what I feel maybe overlooked. A stool sample detected a ” Klebsiella” bacteria said to trigger an autoimmune reaction but no doctor wants to look at the results or even knows what to do? Just a thought………. I have no family history of any of these diseases, my thoughts are it could of stemmed from Immunizations and flu shot combo in the Navy, these are a couple of many theories I have had through the last 11 years. Would love to hear input from anyone else…….
My road has been filled medication, the typically protocol ie. ASA’s “that did no work” to Sulfa “which put me in the hospital with severe body allergic reaction”, to steroids “amazing drug but crappy at the same time”, Remicade ” worked for AS not UC” and now on 6MP ” so far I think it’s working????
Also, my list of trial supplements are to long to list, I could actually write a book on everything I have tried, since I run a health food store. Right now, Garden of Life’s probiotic RAW seems to be helping, if anybody knows anything that is complementary to 6mp without negating it’s purpose I am all ears.
This is my first post and would love to get feedback , please.
