No good treatment

Fri, March 15, 2019 5:39 AM

I've taken lots of different meds for this, and nothing seems to work. You get the effect of placebo for some time, but then it's back to the fun. Does anyone else feel like the docs are just throwing a dart at the wall and hoping it sticks? -stomache

Hi Stomachache! 

I'm sorry to hear that treatment doesn't seem to be working for you. As aleahmd said, it can take a long time for treatments to start working. It's always a good idea to consult with your doctors, and maybe even other individuals in your support network if you're unsatisfied with your treatment. There are a lot of medical options you can explore so hopefully you can find something that ends up working for you. smiley

That said, I totally understand where you are coming from. It can be extremely frustrating to suffer without seeing results. I've definitely gone through periods where I felt like my treatment path was all chance and luck. That's super tough to cope with. However, a lot of medications take a long time to work and it's important to be persistent. 

I truly hope you have better days in your future! yes

Hi! I am sorry you have not been able to find a treatment that works for you. It took me over six months to find a treatment that worked for me. I would suggest talking with your doctor and maybe asking about adding nutritional therapy like the SCD diet. I do not know if you have crohns or colitis, but if nothing is working you could also discuss surgery options. I hope you find something that works soon!
