Hi, Everyone, Been in a bad flare up for a week this past friday. Not much direhea with poo, but blood with runny goo, bad gas that feels like my guts are tearing out and blood will come with it. I used to have this regularly in the mornings and I called it a blow out. but this has been like 24/7. Been taking Remecade for 10 months. It has never went the full 8 weeks, always wears off around 6 or 7 weeks. This time it was really weird I went 4 weeks without any symptoms at all, was in hope of maybe remission. Then bang, overnight i went into a flareup. This is the worse one since I had been in the hospital in Apr,09. Any how my GI wanted me to go back on pred last week and I reminded her she said she would not put me back on pred, been off since July 29, 09, because it mess'es with my sugar so bad. Was on two shots of insulin and two sugar pills a day. So in stead she put me on Entecort, it was like instant releif almost. I am sitting here on my tail without any pain or symptoms for the past 8 or 9 hours. I am on 3 enetocort a day. I think the only side effects I have had seems indigestion with some heart palpitations, but that has went away now. But I have only took one entocort today. Am wondering if entocort can replace remecade for a daily fix and if it would work. Remecade seems to be helping but is not what my GI told us it would be. I have not ever been in remission since I was diag. Seems like every 3 or 4 weeks a flare up. Can any one help me that has maybe been or is on Entocort and Remecade. I had one new syptom with this flare up, I cramped in my private like I was gonna have my period. Have not had one for 5 years. I Go to my GI tuesday, so all the help and insight for questions would be greatly appreciated.
