I have UC and Endometriosis, anyone else with both conditions? Endo diagnosed in 1995. Started having intestinal problems after endo surgery. Diagnosed with UC in 1999.Intestinal problems were chronic diarrhea,always feeling like I had to go but nothing came out, sometimes I had seconds to get to the bathroom, going 5-7 times everyday. GI said symptoms were not result of inflamation in colon, they were what caused inflamation. Does that make sense? GI gave me Asacol,it worked ok but still had some symptoms. Had to stop taking it cause it was to expensive(single mom,denied insurance because of UC. Well its 2008, I am 10 times worse. Chronic pain everyday and intestinal issues. I have read all about
Endo and UC they seem to have similar intestinal issues and they both cause chronic pain. I dont know anymore which one has gotten worse.My daily routine if I want to leave the house is take Imodium advanced a few times a day and dont eat till I get home. I scope out the stores for bathrooms as soon as I walk through the doors, and look for stores as I drive down the road.
I know none of you are docs but, I need advice. I've been taking propolis extract and Aloe vera juice(lily of the desert) for almost a week now, have'nt seen much difference yet. Does this stuff work for UC? I have to go herbal because of no insurance, maybe someone knows of a better choice? I have read Accupuncture is effective,anyone know about
this? I have never told anyone all that before, that was really hard. Sorry it was long.
