The last couple of weeks were really hectic; I had to exert a lot of effort at work and be in good shape. My body responded well except for a proctitis flare up. I used to take a pentasa enema in the morning and a steroid one before bedtime to be able to function otherwise the pain was unbearable. Since yesterday, I developed unexplained dizziness and muscle ache. Today, woke up w slight fever, sore throat and severe muscle ache. Now, I started to have abdominal pain in my lower right quadrant, the normal place of an ileits flare up. I'm nauseated, too. In my last GI's visit, he refused to lower Entocort to less than 7.5 mg and upped Imuran to 175 mg. Is a flare up the normal consequence of exerting effort? They are intending to increase the work load and I suspect I won't be able to do it.
