Long time no see. I have been on 5 ASA's since 2005. 1 year of Asacol and then 4000 of Pentasa until about 2011 or 2012 and 2000 of Pentasa since.
I recently had a urinalysis done as part of a neurology workup. I've had some strange rigid muscle issues in my back and legs plus some other neuro issues.
My urinalysis came back w/ "30" of protein. This was a regular "pee in a cup" not a 24 hour deal. Anyway the neuro's office said my primary will follow up. We are going into the holiday weekend and despite me calling and emailing the primary, I haven't heard anything back on their plan.
One, I don't know how serious this is. Second, I'm concerned about whether I should still be taking my Pentasa. The nurse at the primary said "if it was urgent, you would have heard back by now." The neuro had made it sound urgent though.
Anyway, just curious if anyone else has had this and if it was related to Pentasa or not. I take a good amount of other meds too - protonix, zantac, singulair, allegra, adderall, nuva ring.
