Just found out about this discussion board and I am thrilled!!! I am 40 and have been battling pretty severe Chron's Disease for about 6 yrs. I am currently on a 2 prilosec daily and 1.5 gram doses (4 huge capsules) daily of Apriso. I don't drink caffeine, or eat fried, Italian, Mexican, cheese, dairy...I follow the rules and take my meds. My instestines always fell like someone's been stomping on them wearing golf cleats....like a soda bottle that has been shaken and could explode at any time. I vomit frequently and excessively as well as have diarrhea then constipation. My specialist tells me these are all some symptoms of the Chron's and there is not alot that offers relief. My sister buys peppermint pills from you for her IBS so I am getting some of them from her to try before I purchase them to see if they'll help or not. Even foods that were previously okay in my tummy are not so okay the next time I eat them. I cannot make heads or tails of this disease. I have a brother who is in remission with Chron's as well. Any ideas anyone???
