Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all of you!
I have had CD for the past 20 years ... 6mp brought me into remisssion for over 10 years and med free. June / 06 had what i would say was a pretty bad flare and was put on pred, and 6mp and was brought back to remisssion and now am on just the 6mp.
Anyways what i was wondering is i see some of you talking about being in a little flare and was just curious how you define a small flare?
The reason being is Wed night (3 days ago) I was up most of the night throwing up, terrible pains that would go and come almost like a contraction in my tummy area that would burn and pull then go away only to come back about 20 mins later. Also big time D that just pured out like water.
Now 3 days later i still have the water D and the contracting pains are light and only come maybe every 3-4 hours ... each day they have been lighter and further apart. Tummy is still tender to touch but near as bad as the first 2 days were. Even broke out in a nasty cold sore on my lip that i never get!
So now im wondering would this or could this be a small flare or sound like maybe the flu?
Still have the D about every couple hours i have the strong urge to run to the bathroom.
Could some of you describe your flares small and big?
