Thanks. Both were very informative.
How about medications? Is there something I should be taking on top of my other meds? Are the meds that I'm on enough -- not that I want any more? Is there a medication that I should talk to my GI about?
Basically, I have a really noisy gut that sounds a lot like the hull of an old ship. Occasional D and some minor cramping that I'd like to get under control. Basically, I'm tired of living my life with an almost constant ache in my gut and worrying about every single thing I eat.
Has anybody found anti-anxiety meds to help? I definitely seem to be worse when I'm worried...
Any help would be greatly appreciated....
Diagnosed about five years ago with UC -- wasn't too extensive.
Lost insurance and had a bad flare for a couple of months without any treatment -- couldn't afford them.
Took Prednisone for about two months to go into a remission, with minor flares, that lasted for two years.
While in remission I started on Rowasa enemas and then switched to Asacol.
Back on both Rowasa -- 1 night -- and Asacol 3 pills 3xday
