I just went for a follow-up with the GI on Monday this week.  I had a little pain on the left side, but other than that, everything was fairly stable.  From practically the moment I walked out of the doctor's office, I've been feeling worse and worse. 
I woke up this morning with that roaring gut, painful gas thing, and yesterday and today I've been afraid to be more than 20 steps from the restroom.  I've had d around 8 times today.  Nothing like the worst part of my last flare, but when I have to go, I have to go NOW.  I also have body aches.  (I have fibromyalgia, so I get body aches with anything; sore throat, tummy trouble, etc.)
I called the GI's office, and she is starting me on Entocort.  I'm not crazy about using a steroid, but I sure don't want to let this get out of hand. 
How soon with the Entocort help me feel better?
