my 'tan' one day. I was confused, because I had been feeling so unwell I hadn't been going outside at all and was feeling constantly nauseated. Turns out I had acute jaundice. I didn't know anyone could feel so miserable and still live. A blood test shed some light on the problem and my Dr called me as soon as she had the results and told me to STOP all of my meds. I some more tests to determine cause/damage, but I healed and had no lasting damage to my liver, so it turned out alright.
My jaundice was due to a doubled dose of 6MP. It was just too much for me.
The jaundice made me horribly sick. Constant nausea and my body would try to barf at random times with no triggers I could determine. Had no appetite because I was feeling ill. I had no energy and almost collapsed in the shower just washing my hair. I had to finish as quick as I could, wrap in a towel and then stagger to the bed to lay down and rest until I felt I could get dressed and dry my hair. My skin itched something awful! I scratched deep/long gouges of bruises into my arms, chest, stomach, buttocks and thighs. Nothing seemed to help, though an oatmeal bath could give me enough relief to fall asleep.
I hope this is caught in time and you don't suffer like I did.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry.
I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC. No remission. 5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon. Dx changed to Crohn's. Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returning after resuming 6MP.
