I have been having pains for about a week that would almost drop me to my knees and then go almost as quickly as they came. I knew something was up, I just wasn't sure what it was. Well last night I was on the toilet with explosive D and really painful cramps, and also some bloody mucus. This just really sucks, I don't want to be in a flare, I don't want the pain, I don't want to cry.
I guess my question would be (other than looking for some sympathy from people who know what I am going thru
is I am wondering what meds I should be looking into. I am currently only on Asacol for my IBD but I am thinking I need to go up a level to something a little stronger. I have only ever been on Asacol and Salofalk enemas and suppositories before. I am hoping that I can keep this flare to a minimal by sticking to water, tea and very light food but if things don't improve I will have to go in to see my Dr. Any suggestions.......I have already made it clear to my Dr that I do not want to take pred unless that is the very last resort. What meds have you found helpful?????
Thanks in advance.
