I'm with you, not SURE what a flare is, but I'm newly dxg'd, but my digestion just has gone downhill and downhill and then a reaction to flagyl and now I eat blandly and I still get pains 2 to 5 on the scale and I have to curl up or anxiety, or feelings of having to go to the bathroom and diarrhea, anti-diarrhea pills help me a bit with cramping and going, and I have nausea on and off. Nights and mornings seem to be the worst.
But I am slowly feeling better than I was two weeks ago. I still don't know what I can or cannot eat and have fears of going into the agony of curling up on a ball on the couch all night and shaking. I'm trying heated pads on my stomach. It feels weird that I'll have to watch every bite in my mouth forever and take it easy all the time, I'm so new to it all.
BTW is the Wellbutrin helping for the anxiety. During this big flare up that happened, I got anxiety/depression and I was fine before that so I asked for Wellbutrin (which has helped with thyroid stuff in the past). But this time, it's making me zombie spacing, sort of low on emotions, and insomnia so I don't think I can take it.
hang in there! Find new doctors if you're not getting answers. My aunt had Crohn's real bad and she goes through stuff, but has been pretty good for the most part the past few years, there is hope. I felt hopeless w/my thyroid back in the day and struggled for years, and wished I had my years back, but then it got better and to the point I forgot (and forget now) that I have thyroid problems. Yes, it comes up again and I stick it in the bud to stop it from going south before it happens as best I can.
