Has anyone else used this?
I have been on it for 4 days now. I love this medicine it has been helping keep my symptoms controlled. I used to see blood a lot throughout the day, and go to the bathroom 5 or 6 times before lunch, And yes there was pain. I was on the Salofalk enemas which started to physically hurt me to squirt the medicine into my body, I could not retain it anymore. So I now use the cortifoam.
However, yesterday I started to have spasm in my foot, It felt like a throbbing pain. which got me excited and restless. I have never felt that before. Then I couldn't sleep and I was late for work today because of this. I called my GI but the receptionist picked up and said she had never heard of that reaction to it. My GI would "call me back".. Still waiting.
Anyone have any weird side effects with this medicine?
I use it once at night, and I also had a blood test done yesterday. Maybe that had something to do with the foot cramps?
Any advice? I want to just discontinue the meds altogether I'm really SCARED to take it tonight.
