Well i was just wondering what others on here thought..i never know if I'm overreacting or not :( I've been out of the hospital from my last really really bad flare for about 3 months now...and well just recently I've started to have more pain, more diarreah, loose stools that look fluffy and close to being diarreah (lol), and small amounts of blood again...does anyone on here think it's a good time to call my GI soon? I just am worried i'm going to get so bad again and end up in the ER, which sometimes doesn't sound like a bad thing because i would get pumped with fluids and pain killers that give me alot of relief...i also don't want to go back on prednisone :( it never really helped me! i think the not eating for 3 to 4 weeks was what helped lol..and i really don't think this remicade is completely fixing me..am i supposed to be like 100% better on it? cuz i'm certainly not, but i am better than i was months ago...i just dont want to suffer anymore :( im so sick of this up and down every day..right now i feel like my intestines r burning...:( and the funny thing is i can't really go right now...all that comes out is small amounts of puss and blood and diarreah..ughhhh :( any advice would be great..everyone on here is so nice and i truly appreciate it :)

Yes, I think you should call your doctor. I think it's easier to treat a flare in its early stages, before complications develop.

Best wishes,

I agree. CALL YOUR DOCTOR! You may need to change up meds. Or it could be something else. Last time that I got over a flare up I started feeling really bad and thought it was another flare but it was c-dif. Not fun. Def call your doctor and get it checked out.

Good luck! Feel better soon.

I agree with Ivy its best to catch it and stop it early. Could be also your last flare was so bad it was hard for the Pred to work, maybe this time it will work quickly to quiet things down. Good luck!
