HI Eveyone, it's been a long time since I"ve been here, I've been on the ulcerated colitis board. I since had my colonoscopy and my UC is worse and my GI said it's probably from all the antibiotics and not taking my anti inflammatory meds.
My GI went on to say my doc her in Saginaw Michigan tells everyone they have Lyme's disease. But I told her I paid for a $1,000 ELISA test and my doc said I had it or had had it at one time. So confusing.
Anyways I stopped all antibiotics and have been fine with my energy however my UC is still bad. My last thing I was suppose to be on was Flagyl and aren't you suppose to work up to that really slow? I was taking just a 1/4 of a tablet and I was getting diarreah.
I'm back on my anti inflammatories, sulfasalazine, but I'm wondering if I should get back on Flagyl since this is suppose to be helpful for those with UC and I guess lyme's as well.
I can't see my Lyme's doctor that much, he doesn't do insurance papers so it's $120-$160 each month he wants me to come back!!
What do I do, try flagyl again after I've been on my anti inflammatories a few weeks, go back to my Lyme's doctor and talk to him? I felt like my energy came back from taking all the antibiotics, but my UC got worse and he just re arranges my pills or prescribes new ones. I was doing bicillian injections, I did that for 14 weeks a shot a week and no improvement in my gut. Any suggestions??
UC since '05, now on 9-12 asacol a day, rowasa enemas at night. I've tried for almost 4 years without meds, my colon got worse. I believe in meds now, I need them.
