I've had Crohn's for 35 years and after 5 surgeries have found that MSM with dipentum, vit C and a little prednisone has relieved all my symptoms. This is the only time I've ever had any relief. I'd try the following 10 mg prednisone daily, 500 mg of dipentum 3 times a day, 1.5 gms of MSM 3 times a day and 250 mg of vit C 4 times a day. MSM is available from Walmart- 120 capsules for $7 -- very cheap. good luck.
