I've been flaring for the past month (pooing lots of blood, cramping, etc etc). I am on remicade and my doc put me on entocort when I started flaring. When the entocort didn't work my doc put me on 40mg of prednisone. When the 40mg of prednisone didn't work he put me on my usual full dosage, 60mg.
Needless to say, I'm still flaring. BUT my doc has had my labs drawn about
three times this month (I had my latest lab draw today) and he said that he's not sure if I'm flaring b/c all my lab numbers are normal.
He's not sure why I'm pooing blood, but I have a colonoscopy scheduled for April 1st.
My main question is, If this ISN'T a flare then what is it?! And WHY isn't prednisone working? It has ALWAYS worked in the past!
