About Amber

Since being diagnosed in 2012 with severe Crohn’s disease I have struggled with many a flare up and drug allergies to pretty much everything.

At the moment I have currently failed all of the standard medication based therapies, and am therefore stuck on steroids for the foreseeable future.

My current disease symptoms include; severe abdominal pain - especially after eating, abdominal bloating, general fatigue, nausea, joint pain mainly in my smaller joints, and far too many trips to the bathroom than is comfortable.
