Anyone ever feel like when you are having a bad period, low back pain and the feeling like your insides are coming out during a flare? Haven't had a period since 1981 surgery but remember it well. Also, when I had the bad ones with lots of clots, etc. I always had a bowel interaction - loose stools to constipation, bloating, etc. I've had that during this flare/road to remission and the thing that helps is heat. I use my bean bag thing in the micro at home and LOVE the heated seat in my husband's car. I'm having no bleeding, just this feeling.
Diagnosed with LS UC 1984, suffered for 16 years, high doses Pred and eased off to Azulfidine; remission for 9 years, just flared recently. Asacol 3, 3x day; 20 ml. Pred.. Heading into remission again with addition of: prayer, deep breathing, walks on the beach and: 4-1000 mg.garlic twice daily; 2 zyflamend twice daily, SuperFoods RX multi-whole food vita twice daily, SuperFoods RX Omega 3; 3 Asacol 3 x day with 3 Vitamin Shoppe Ultimate 10 Probiotic; Metamucil morning and night - no dairy, hardly any coffee, lots of water and green tea. Was using L-Glutamine but read that it can aggravate?
