Hi all -
New member here - I am 35 and was just diagnosed 3 days ago - pretty unhappy, but gotta get this all figured out. I have been "sick" on and off for 2 years, but constantly for 6 months straight, so at least I can get some medication now to cut the pain of the cramps. I am taking Asacol - helps a lot so far. I have a huge concern about
the cost (health insurance doesn't cover it) so any ideas about
getting it more affordably would be appreciated. I am an artist & my husband supports me financially...which means i just became an expensive wife
I was wondering if any of you had tried Chiropractors for an easing of the problem. I have read several places that spinal misalignment can cause UC.....I do have mild scholiosis & scar tissue so I thought I might look into it.
I am hoping that the Asacol will calm my running to the bathroom enough so that I can start the retention enemas - I go every 20 minutes or so & don't think it is worth trying one until that slows down.
Your posts have been very helpful for me so far to learn about
what I have to look forward to - I read them all day yesterday.
Thanks & glad you're all out there being supportive for each other.
