I was diagnosed with Non Specific Colitis last October and was put on Asacol 2 x 3 a day. (6 tablets a day). My symptoms were rectal bleeding and a slight increase in frequency of bowel movement from 1 a day to 2 or 3 a day.
I stopped bleeding a week after taking medication and God Willing still haven't blead again since. However, I am worried about my bowel movements, sometimes it's one a day, mosty it's 2 but yesterdday it was 3!!
I have been consuming lots of tea lately with 2 spoons of sugar each time and eat other sweet stuff but I need to do that to keep up my weight which I am finding hard to increase although I am not losing weight.
Can people help with knowing whether I am in a flair? Is the soft but well formed stools a flair? Is the soreness down there a flair? Or am I thinking too much and bringing it on myself unduly?
I feel 100% fine in myself otherwise. (Apologies if my symptoms are trivial compared to others).
