Hi. This is the first time I've ever joined a group or forum of any kind on the internet, so hope I am doing this right. I was diagnosed with Crohns about 2 1/2 years ago and was put on Pentasa. I took it for about a week and didn't feel any better, so have refused medication since that time. I am beginning to think the disease is progressive though, because my symptoms over the past six months have gotten wildly out of control. I recently had to run out in the middle of a date in order to avoid embarrassment and can't figure out the rhyme or reason to why some days I'm ok and others I want to crawl in a hole and die. I saw my GI last week and he wants to do a colonoscopy and then give me Asacol. I'm scared to try a drug since the last one made me feel awful. Not to mention, who wants to take massive amounts of pills everyday? Now for my real question, and I can't believe I'm even writing this, can someone tell me what it might mean if I suddenly (the past week or two) have 2 round purple/red lumps around my anus that hurt? What is it? Do I need to go to the doctor? Has anyone else experienced this? Thank you everyone in advance for any advice. I'm sure I'm freaking out, but the bumps are really scaring me.
