I really can't thank you all enough for your responses. Besides going through all of the emotions that comes with this condition I have very little information about
it. Each day I was hoping to get better and just wait it out for the appointment I have next month. UC in google doesn't really address "flare ups". I honestly thought maybe my current state would be the state I would be in for a really long time. Besides I didn't like some web sites because they seemed like ads for the pharmeceutical industry.
Here is a little more about me. Symptoms started in Oct. 08 (otherwise totally healthy on no medication for anything). Saw a general practitioner in Dec. and had a colonoscopy first week in Jan. General practitioner gave me mesalamine suppositories 500 mg two times a day, but I was 100% unable to retain morning dose and night time dose lasted one hour at best. Stopped taking. Myabe had a total of 10 night time doses. They also made me feel nauseated and bloated (or was that just the UC?). All along my symptoms are/were getting worse/ or changing?? Blood test for anemia in December was in the normal range (but I was nothing like I am now).
Because of your advice I plan to get my appointment sooner - no matter what it takes.
Also please know that I have never used one of these forums before so I don't mean to ramble on so much. Last question for now -- is a "flare up" also associated with great urgency whenever there is anything resembling a formed BM in my colon (ever the smallest?). And great amounts of blood to boot.
Thank you all again!
