Posted yesterday about a proctitis flare up. Today, I woke up w severe pain in my lower right quadrant. Was expecting this flare up as my energy decreased a couple of days ago and I started to sleep a lot. Also, I made a mistake and ate a lot of zucchini in the last couple of days. I thought that as long as it was baby zucchini, it won't cause any problems. For the first time in 7 years, my ileum gets that swollen; it's visible if compared to my other side. I can feel it will come out of its place and is very painful. I took all possible antispasmodics and rested in bed. Having both ileitis and proctitis flare ups at the same time is not a joke. I have d and tenesmus at the same time.
Afraid to see my GI as he might prescribe pred. He did that in the last ileitis flare up I got at the beginning of the year and put me on the lowest dose but still it's pred. Are there any ideas to put these flare ups under control w/o rushing to my GI.
