Just a vent....

I've been doing well for the past few weeks and am taking a slow taper off of prednisone. I have been on 5mg for about 1 1/2 weeks now and today I have big D and the pain rhoid area. This is 2 days before going to San Francisco for a 4 day conference. Luckily I recently got a Rx filled for Pred a few days ago for something else and used to to sustain my 5mg taper. Well now that I appear to be flaring I upped my dose to 15mg today and plan on taking 20mg for the next few days then tapering again. I just hope it kicks in before we leave because the flight is long and I will be at a conference the whole time there... I don't want this to be a miserable trip and it's the first time work has sent me to a conference. Not looking good so far, but maybe it was just something I ate because this almost always happens when I visit my Mom and eat there. I am going to play it safe either way.
Feeling the best I have in several years! And it keeps getting better!

4mg LDN at bedtime, 500mg Pentasa 4x/day, 500mg Vitamin C, 1,000 I/U Vitamin D3, 1 Florastor 2x/day, 1 Nature's Way Primadophilus Reuteri at bed time.

Medication prior to taking LDN: 100 mg Imuran a day (GI wanted 150 mg), 1,000 mg of Pentasa 4x/day, 3 mg of Entocort 3x/day, Librax as needed.

Oh! That's frustrating. No, you didn't need that.

Is there a chance that topical meds would help you? They might give you better, and quicker, results, depending on where your disease is located.

It's in the TI and really the only other thing I have is Analpram for the pain in my bum. That helps with sitting down and everything.
